The African diaspora's contribution to European art music has been substantial but a history of white supremacy and racial oppression has largely erased their contributions.  With this concert, Music Gallery, Innovations en concert, Western Front, Music on Main, NOW Society, Coastal Jazz and Blues, tpué: (trading places une échange) and Suoni Per Il Popolo collaborate to bring an online performance of two major works by African-American composers, performed by Canadian artists, to audiences world-wide: Julia Perry's Stabat Mater and Julius Eastman’s The Holy Presence of Joan D'Arc. These two performances will be streamed for free by Suoni TV at at 8:00 PM EST on April 1, 2021.
