Columbia College Department of Visual Arts and Music, in collaboration with The Quorus, Columbia’s LGBTQAA-Z Community Choir present Craig Hella Johnson’s Considering Matthew Shepard.

Five days later, when Matt passed away, the world was watching. Approaching the eve of the 20th anniversary, Craig Hella Johnson has responded with his first concert-length work, Considering Matthew Shepard.
