In the second concert of our 2018/19 concert season, MEC combines two of its recent passions: our ongoing investigation into the life and work of the late, great Julius Eastman, and the introducing of important young composers to our programming. In this case, our program focuses on two groundbreaking works looking LGBTQ issues directly in the eye: Julius Eastman’s powerful and courageous Gay Guerrilla and Sarah Hennies unique and profoundly moving Contralto.
