Born out of the desire to foster cultural curiosity, Castle of our Skins is a concert and educational series dedicated to celebrating Black artistry through music. From classrooms to concert halls, Castle of our Skins invites exploration into Black heritage and culture, spotlighting both unsung and celebrated figures of past and present.
"[the] hopes for [Castle of our Skins] are ambitious, but they seem right for a world that more often than not seems agonizingly divided."
“The programmatic choices both complemented and reinforced each other, and the impressive performers always communicated directly and movingly with their audience.”
-Geoffrey Wieting, The Boston Musical Intelligencer
