An important landmark in the recovery of Julius Eastman's music, this concert features one of Eastman's earliest works—Thruway (for soprano, flute, clarinet, trombone, violin, cello, large choir, and jazz trio)—in its New York City debut performed by the Arcana New Music Ensemble. They will also be performing Eastman's piece Buddha. Opening the evening will be a special performance by Gerry Eastman, brother of Julius.
