Event Description

Considering Matthew Shepard is a deeply moving fusion oratorio that explores the life, legacy, and tragic death of Matthew Shepard. With acclaimed soloists, innovative staging, and an 8-piece ensemble, this composition delves into the complexities of Matthew's life, the anguish of his untimely death, and the enduring impact on society. Through powerful music and storytelling, it evokes a range of emotions from sorrow to resilience, serving as a call for compassion, understanding, and acceptance. This composition stands as a testament to Matthew's memory, inviting reflection on the power of love, empathy, and the need for social change.

Please note that Considering Matthew Shepard contains direct quotations of the bigoted words of Westboro Baptist Church members, who picketed Shepard’s funeral. Audience members are warned of strong language and the intense themes in the piece.

The Isabel Voices is an innovative vocal ensemble that embraces connection and collaboration, celebrating diverse musical expression through dynamic performances that reflect our contemporary world. We present curated annual concert seasons at the Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts to connect and inspire communities through the power of vocal music. Our performances are composed of solo and ensemble voices, focusing on collaboration with composers, and performing and visual artists. Celebrating diverse musical expression, The Isabel Voices is committed to shining a light on traditionally underrepresented groups, championing the creation of new work, and presenting eclectic performances each season.
