Considering Matthew Shepard with Conspirare

  • First United Methodist Church 500 East Colorado Boulevard Pasadena, CA, 91101 United States

Featured ensemble at the Western American Choral Directors Association Conference

Conspirare performs the world premiere of a passion by Craig Hella Johnson, a musical response to the tragic death of a young man who has become an American icon and a symbol for hope and empowerment. Johnson has set a rich variety of texts by Lesléa Newman, Hafiz, Hildegard von Binge, and others. Several Conspirare singers will be featured as soloists, and the group will be joined by a small instrumental ensemble.

The choir will travel to Goshen, IN where they will record the work with Harmonia Mundi for a Fall 2016 CD release.
