with Musical Guest: Hinge
The path for social progress is rarely linear; every setback may erode our confidence and ability to continue the fight. The music of Julius Eastman reflects this frustration from the perspective of the composer as he expresses his personal experience as a gay black musician in the 70s and 80s. Our worship experience will be enriched by a performance of one of Eastman’s pieces by Keith Kirchoff’s quartet, Hinge, presenting his work Gay Guerilla, which narrates the effort of social change, starting with a single voice, losing direction along the way, but persevering until the fight is won.
