At Loyola, we are requesting that everyone leave a lighted tea candle (electronic) in their windows on Friday, September 9, to show their commitment to suicide prevention, to represent their support to persons who are suffering, and to mourn those lost to suicide. We will also be distributing information on how to recognize and help students at risk. If you wish to participate, please send an email with your name, building and office number to Asia Wong at and a tea light will be delivered to your office.
Tea lights, magnets with the counselor on-call info and suicide prevention info cards are also being distributed to all on-campus residents.

Master Class with Bryan Hymel, tenor

Time: 2 pm to 3 pm

Location: Nunemaker Auditorium, Monroe Hall, Loyola University New Orleans

International oper star Bryan Hymel '01 will through this master class engage with Loyola students and area residents, share personal and professional experiences, and provide coaching on unique aspects of their own performance styles. Through this exciting opportunity, Loyola students and area residents will glean training tips from a top opera star — nuggets of information that they will never forget and may incorporate into their own training and performances.

Hymel, who made his Metropolitan Opera debut when he stepped in as a last-minute replacement in its production of “Les Troyens,” is one of the fastest-rising tenor stars in the opera world. Hymel’s recent seasons have brought debuts and return engagements at the world’s most accomplished opera houses and festivals. One of the opera world’s fastest-rising stars, Bryan Hymel continues to perform leading repertoire in the music capitals of the world. His 2015-2016 season brings a number of debuts throughout the United States and Europe.

Among his many accolades, Hymel is the winner of the 2013 Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Opera; the Metropolitan Opera’s Beverly Sills Artist Award in 2012. The New Orleans native is the Top Prize Winner of the 2009 Gerda Lissner Foundation Competition and was the First Prize Winner of the 2008 Licia Albanese/Puccini Foundation Competition, the 2008 Loren L. Zachary Vocal Competition, and the 2008 Giulio Gari Foundation Competition. He was a grand finalist in the 2000 Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions. An exclusive recording artist for Warner Classics, his first solo album Héroïque debuted at number 3 on the Billboard Classical Music chart, and earned Hymel the coveted Georges Thill Prize by the Académie Nationale du Disque Lyrique and the Newcomer of the Year Award from ECHO Klassik.
