#270 Live at Lincoln Center: Vanishing City

Jeremiah Moss’ book, Vanishing New York inspired this live program featuring the music of New York City composers who were an important staple of the ’70’s and ’80’s scene but were taken too soon. We’re honoring Julius Eastman, Arthur Russell, Ben Weber, and Tui St. German Tucker by representing their works and stories.

This program took place at the Lincoln Center Atrium and also featured a pre-concert panel presentation with Jeremiah Moss, Open House New York director Gregory Wessner, author of Country of Cities Vishaan Chakrabarti and composer Frank J. Oteri.
