By Charlotte Robinson, March 07, 2014

On March 25th & 26th the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus will present “LUSTER – An American Songbook” featuring special guest star Ann Hampton Callaway & the world premiere of Tyler’s Suite. Tyler’s Suite is a choral song-cycle that pays tribute to Tyler Clementi the 18-year-old Rutgers University student who took his life 3 years ago after being bullied that brought national attention to the bullying epidemic against LGBT teens. The suite features brand new pieces by 8 of America’s most celebrated composers including Stephen Schwartz, John Corigliano, John Bucchino, Nolan Gasser, Lance Horne, Ann Hampton Callaway, Craig Carnelia & Jake Heggie, with lyrics by Pamela Stewart. Ann Hampton Callaway stated, "There won’t be a dry eye in the house on March 25-26 at Davies Hall in San Francisco, when I join Tim Seelig & The San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus to perform the world premiere of ‘Tyler’s Suite,’ a work that honors the young violinist, Tyler Clementi, who took his life after being bullied online for being gay. It's going to be historic!" The concert will also include a celebration of 20th Century American music. LUSTER will feature the 300 men of the chorus & Callaway singing timeless classics from George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Duke Ellington & Irving Berlin. Tyler’s Suite will be presented in the second act. The evening is presented in collaboration with the Tyler Clementi Foundation & features San Francisco violinist Kevin Rogers.
