Coro Vocati, a leading Atlanta-based professional chamber choir, is proud to announce its upcoming production of “Considering Matthew Shepard,” a powerful and emotionally gripping musical journey about the life and legacy of hate-crime victim Matthew Shepard. Pairing chamber choir and rich orchestrations with compelling multimedia visuals, “Considering Matthew Shepard” is a brilliant tribute featuring jazz, country and classical solos; poetic texts; and passages from Shepard’s own personal journal. This special event honors the 20th anniversary of Shepard’s tragic death, an act that shocked the world and led to the creation of The Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act. Originally developed for and performed by the renowned chamber ensemble, Conspirare, “Considering Matthew Shepard” has toured to select cities across the United States; however, Coro Vocati’s performance marks the work’s professional premiere in Georgia. Coro Vocati’s production of “Considering Matthew Shepard” will occur during LGBTQ Pride Month on Saturday, June 29, 2019 at 8 p.m. The performance will take place at the Sandy Springs Performing Arts Center, located at 1 Galambos Way, Sandy Springs, GA 30328. Tickets range in price from $20-$50. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit citysprings.com/events.

An amazing story! – #Repost @npr ・・・ The small city of Hendersonville, N.C., recently celebrated LGBTQ pride for the first time. Unlike many pride celebrations in bigger cities, there was no parade or festival. It was a potluck picnic. Rev. Jerry Miller, whose son came out as gay four decades ago, was there with his wife, Bea. Twenty years ago, Miller began leading a local PFLAG chapter, a group for family and friends of LGBTQ people. At first, it wasn’t easy for him to reconcile his faith with his son’s identity. “My wife and I basically went in the closet because I was a pastor of a Baptist church at that time. And I prayed that God would change my son someday,” Miller says. “God didn’t change him, he changed me.” (Image: Monique LaBorde for NPR)
