Monday, September 17, 2018 at 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Moore Musical Arts Center, Kobacker Hall
Moore Musical Arts Center, Bowling Green, OH 43403

Our 2018-2019 Helen McMaster Endowed Professorship in Vocal and Choral Studies presents the choral ensemble Conspirare with conductor/composer Craig Hella Johnson. Conspirare will be presenting Craig's composition Considering Matthew Shepard.

This performance will be free of charge for all current BGSU students, faculty and staff with their BGSU ID card at the door. For community members, adult and student/child tickets can be purchased here.

On the 20th anniversary of Matthew Shepard's tragic death, Conspirare will perform this choral drama that both celebrates his life and explores how we can transcend tragedy to discover our common humanity. Read more about Considering Matthew Shepard here, and watch a preview video here.

"It's impossible to be unmoved...an impressive union of country, folk/pop, gospel, plainchant, hymn and blues with a touch of musical theater." - Opera News

The Conspirare concert was one of the most awe-inspiring performances I have attended. I am so glad I went.
