David Geffen Hall, Lincoln Center


Tyler’s Suite is a new and lauded nine-piece choral movement dedicated to the memory of Tyler Clementi, a talented young musician who died by suicide after being bullied by his roommate during his first weeks of college.


Created under the leadership of Composer Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin) and Dr. Timothy Seelig (Conductor/Artistic Director of the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus), Tyler’s Suite explores the voices and experiences of Tyler and his family through the music of nine of today’s top composers: John Bucchino, Ann Hampton Callaway, Craig Carnelia, John Corigliano, Stephen Flaherty, Nolan Gasser Jake Heggie, Lance Horne, and Stephen Schwartz. Presented in partnership with DCINY and the Tyler Clementi Foundation.


Tyler's mother Jane Clementi will attend the performance. She will speak about Tyler, her and her family's experience and the foundation they established in his memory that fights for internet safety and to protect all children from bullying, especially online forms of bullying. A portion of all ticket proceeds to benefit the Tyler Clementi Foundation.


The music of Norwegian Composer Ola Gjeilo conducted by DCINY Associate Artistic Director James Meaders will include the New York Premiere of Gjeilo's Dark Night of the Soul and Luminous Night of the Soul. The set will also include Gjeilo’s well known work, The Ground from his Sunrise Mass.
