Click to read the Telegram & Gazette interview with Artistic Director Ed Tyler:  Master Singers of Worcester present ‘Considering Matthew Shepard’ 25 years since his death

The vision for this concert reflects that of the Matthew Shepard Foundation: “
... to amplify the story of Matthew Shepard to inspire individuals, organizations, and communities to embrace the dignity and equality of all people.  Through local, regional, and national outreach, we empower individuals to find their voice to create change and challenge communities to identify and address hate that lives without our schools, neighborhoods and homes.

The Master Singers of Worcester are delighted to share that we will be joined by several prominent community organizations at our upcoming performances of Considering Matthew Shepard. These organizations’ missions reflect the spirit of inclusivity, acceptance, and love that we hope to convey with our performances of this poignant work.

Doors open at 6:30pm.
