Legacy

Tyler’s Suite   •   I Am Harvey Milk

McCaw Hall

Saturday, March 28, 2015  —  8:00pm
Sunday, March 29  —  2:00pm

What is a LEGACY?

For the two men honored in this concert, their legacy is the ever-growing number of advocates and activists that were motivated to better our lives because of their deaths.

The assassination of Harvey Milk and the suicide of student Tyler Clementi have represented critical tipping points for the gay rights movement in our country.

Inspired by their true stories, LEGACY is a soaring celebration of the human spirit that provokes as many emotions as it has musical stylings. From disco to Broadway, classical to operatic, LEGACY’s musical storytelling spans despair, love, and hope as it remembers these men through the song cycles of their lives.

The uplifting nature of these moving works from some of America’s great contemporary composers demonstrates that together we can continue to build a powerful legacy. Join us in doing so with this spectacular concert event!
