In October 1998, university student Matthew Shepard was targeted for his sexuality. He was kidnapped, severely beaten, tied to a fence and left to die in a lonely field.

Twenty years after that terrible event, we perform Craig Hella Johnson’s bold and transcendent work, which incorporates a variety of musical styles and texts, including passages from Matthew’s personal journal.

Gamelan is the traditional ensemble music of Java and Bali in Indonesia, made up predominantly of percussive instruments.  It is taught without notation, which means the students have to memorize their parts.  Directed by artist-in-residence I Dewa Made Suparta, the group plays both traditional Balinese music and modern compositions.

While the term “empire” has come to have strong political connotations, an archaic use of the word simply means to hold absolute power over something or someone. Few who listen to or participate in music could deny its empire!

This is a concert about storytelling.  Surprisingly, Rossini's Barber of Seville is not a story about a rabbit masquerading as a barber but a love story complete with disguises and mistaken identity and love triumphs in the end.  The overture was written for a different opera actually, "Aureliano in Palmira". Rossini borrowed it as he had run out of time.
