TCGMC celebrates 50 years since the Summer of Love with a return engagement of The Beatles! The Fab Four provided the soundtrack for the tumultuous ‘60s – from the protest movements to the love-ins. “You say you want a Revolution?” We say “Imagine all the people, living life in peace.” Now more than ever, it’s time to revisit the timeless music of the Beatles.

Twin Cities Gay Men's Chorus will perform Hand in Hand with our brothers in song, Kansas City's Heartland Men's Chorus.
This unique exchange will feature the area premiere of Tyler's Suite, a nine-piece choral movement with violin dedicated to the memory of Tyler Clementi, a talented young musician who committed suicide after being bullied by his roommate during his first weeks of college. Many of today's top composers contributed to the piece including Ann Hampton Callaway, John Corigliano, Stephen Flaherty (Ragtime), and Stephen Schwartz (Testimony, Wicked) with libretto written by Pamela Stewart.
"The story of Tyler Clementi, the story of the loss of one young man who clearly had so much to offer the world and those who loved and would come to love him, reminds us that every life lost because of bullying and bigotry is a specific individual tragedy. This is why I, and this group of gifted collaborators who have joined me, feel privileged to bring our time, energy and talents to the creation of Tyler's Suite." -Stephen Schwartz
