The Community Foundation of Sarasota County recently granted $20,000 from the Dallas and Elizabeth Dort Charitable Fund to Choral Artists of Sarasota to help fund its April 2024 concert “Considering Matthew Shepard,” a powerful musical journey about the life and legacy of Matthew Shepard, a young gay man who was tragically murdered in Wyoming in 1998. The work was composed by Craig Helle Johnson, premiered in 2016, and has been performed by more than 40 choirs across the world. This production is joined in partnership by Embracing Our Differences, Project Pride, ALSO Youth, and the First Congregational Church UCC.
