On Saturday, March 25 at 7:30 p.m., The Stonewall Chorale, the nation’s first gay and lesbian choir, will present Craig Hella Johnson’s cantata “Considering Matthew Shepard”  at Holy Apostles (28th St. & 9th Ave) in Chelsea.

This stirring, three-part oratorio commemorates the 25th anniversary of Matthew Shepard’s death. The dramatic score tells the true story of a young gay college student from Laramie, Wyoming, who was beaten, tortured, tied to a fence and left to die. Employing a variety of musical styles, including gospel, traditional hymns, blues and folk, the simple yet poignant melodies of the score hold an appeal to all listeners.

Tickets for the performance on March 25 at Holy Apostles are available online at www.stonewallchorale.org/tickets. General Admission: $35 in advance, $40 at the door (subject to availability) Student/Senior: $25 in advance only.
