The Camerata Singers provide cultural and educational opportunities for a multi-generational audience through the production of choral music. Their current project is a performance of Craig Hella Johnson’s “Considering Matthew Shepard.” Its message, composed in remembrance of the brutal murder of Shepard in Laramie, Wyoming in 1998, serves as a reminder that while hate is powerful, love is stronger and compels us to seek compassion, inclusiveness and justice. The performance of this potent work features Camerata Futures high school students—a great way to teach teenagers not just about the technique of singing, but also about acceptance and diversity. The concert’s beneficiary, Harmony at Home, hopes to end cycles of violence and abuse by empowering children and young adults with knowledge, skills and confidence to lead healthy and productive lives.
I really have no words for what you gave us today. It was powerful—musically, spiritually, politically, socially, humanely, intellectually, joyously, uplifting and so many other levels. Thank you!
