CANCELLED - Oakville Choral: Considering Matthew Shepard and Fauré’s Requiem

07:30 PM — 09:30 PM

This event has been cancelled.   *** Oakville Choral’s April 2020 concerts will feature Fauré’s Requiem preceded by movements from a recent remarkable composition by American composer Craig Hella Johnson called Considering Matthew Shepard. It is inspired by the life and death of 21-year-old Matthew Shepard and was composed on the 20th anniversary of his kidnapping and murder at the hands of violent homophobes in Wyoming. It is skillfully constructed and consists of powerful and beautiful music with moments of tragedy but also joy, forgiveness and healing. There are many musical styles in this work, from baroque to country reflecting the character and culture of Matthew and his environment, yet it is remarkably cohesive with a profound expressive arc. It is referred to as a Passion, whereby the fence on which Matthew was tied and left to take his final breaths parallels too accurately a crucifixion. Following its Canadian premier in 2018, Oakville Choral will be among the first groups to bring this work to a Canadian audience..
