Gay Guerilla: A Hands-On Experience of the Life, Music, and Legacy of Julius Eastman

Sponsored by

This event is over.

Event Details:

Join the Stanford New Ensemble, Marisol Montalvo, and Seth Parker Woods to celebrate the life and music of Julius Eastman, an American maverick and radical who challenged the exclusionary foundations of European classical music and organized his compositions as tools for social change. His music deals with issues of race, gender, sexual orientation, and class, and was stylistically groundbreaking in many ways, preceding some of the earliest examples of minimalism and particularly marking the downtown New York scene of the 70s and 80s.
