The American University Chamber Singers present a haunting oratorio honoring the life and death of Matthew Shepard, an openly gay university student who died violently at the hands of two men acting out of hate. The lyrics of this moving and ultimately hopeful work are woven from his college journals, the testimony of his mother at the trial of his murderers, poetry by Rumi and William Blake, and more.

For mature audiences. A talkback panel will follow the performance.
