To My Brother

Commissioned, premiered, and performed around the world by Cantus as part of their 2015-2016 "Four Loves" project, To My Brother sets portions of letters written by James Clementi to his deceased brother Tyler, a freshman at Rutgers University and a promising violinist who died by suicide in 2010 after being outed as gay by cyberbullies.  To My Brother features quotations of Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto (op. 35), Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 3 (K. 216), and David Conte's Invocation and Dance. Text used by kind permission of James Clementi and adapted by Ilene Wong.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of To My Brother will be donated to the Tyler Clementi Foundation, which works to end online and offline bullying in schools, workplaces and faith communities, and promotes safe, inclusive and respectful social environments in homes, schools, campuses, churches and the digital world for vulnerable youth, LGBT youth and their allies.

TTBB. Duration approx. 5' 45".  Dedicated to the memory of Tyler Clementi.
