George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic

The State Theatre, 130 W College, State College

Recording both as Parliament and Funkadelic, George Clinton revolutionized R&B during the ’70s, twisting soul music into funk by adding influences from several late-’60s acid heroes: Jimi Hendrix, Frank Zappa, and Sly Stone. The Parliament/Funkadelic machine ruled black music during the ’70s, capturing over 40 R&B hit singles (including three number ones) and recording three platinum albums.

Tyler's Suite

"Tyler's Suite is a new and lauded nine-piece choral movement dedicated to the memory of Tyler Clementi, a talented young musician who died by suicide after being bullied by his roommate during his first weeks of college. 

Created under the leadership of Composer Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin) and Dr. Timothy Seelig (Conductor/Artistic Director of the San Franscisco Gay Men's Chorus), Tyler's Suite explores the voices and experiences of Tyler and his family through the music of nine of today's top composers, including Ann Hampton Callaway and Stephen Schwartz.

This powerful collection of songs moves audiences and singers alike and ultimately shines a light of hope for a safer, kinder world." `From the Tyler Clementi Foundation Website (tylerclementi.org)
