I'm working with James Lecesne and Andrew Slack on the following. If any of you have advice or know someone I can contact we would really appreciate it:
Last week, Tyler Clementi, a shy, 18 year old Rutgers University freshman and gifted violist, jumped to his death from the George Washington bridge after his roommate and another classmate secretly filmed and broadcast his dorm-room sexual encounters with another man.
To bring awareness and help to this truly unspeakable tragedy, James Lecesne, co-founder of The Trevor Project (http://www.thetrevorproject.org/) and Andrew Slack, founder of The Harry Potter Alliance (http://www.thehpalliance.org/) are looking to compose a video of violinist from around the country playing Bruch Violin Concerto- first movement as a tribute.
The Trevor Project is a non-profit organization that operates the only nationwide, around-the-clock crisis and suicide prevention helpline for !*****! and questioning youth. The Harry Potter Alliance combines pop culture, social change, and new media to create social change.
If you fit the following description or know any willing violinists who do please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
