Composed by multi-Tony award winner Stephen Schwartz, Jake Heggie, John Corigliano, Ann Hampton Callaway, and others, Tyler’s Suite is a 9 movement work that explores the voices of Tyler Clementi and his family.Tyler, an accomplished violinist and unicyclist, was coming out as a young gay man, beginning his freshman year at Rutgers University.
Tyler was a victim of cyber-bullying by his roommate, and died by suicide, after just a few weeks at Rutgers. In their grief, his parents established the Tyler Clementi Foundation to help end online and offline bullying, and several years ago the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus commissioned Tyler’s Suite, to serve as a source of healing, hope, and a call to action to end bullying.
