Mission
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.

Company Bio
Castle of our Skins is a concert and educational series committed to celebrating Black artistry and encouraging exploration into Black history and heritage. Dedicated to fostering cultural curiosity through music, Castle of our Skins is deeply aware the lack of equity in composer representation in classical concert halls and the omission of important stories and figures in Black history. This lack of equal inclusion is one we hope to change. Through carefully designed educational workshops and creative concert programs, we aim to highlight the achievements of Black artists and historical figures who have slipped through the cracks of fame and history.  Recent productions include our "Ain't I a woman" and "I am a Man" sister-brother projects exploring Black feminism, Black masculinity and human resiliency through music, dance, spoken word and art. Bringing Black artistry center stage, other Castle of our Skins events include "Tyaphaka," an evening of classical and contemporary music, multi-media and dance inspired by Black visual art; "a veil of liquid diamonds," a portrait concert devoted to the kaleidoscopic music of contemporary composer Jeffrey Mumford, and; "MassQ Ball 2017: Convergence," a multi-dimensional, multi-arts-infused celebration honoring communities of color in partnership with transmedia artist Daniel Callahan. Now entering our 7th season, Castle of our Skins is continuing to showcase music, history and Black artistry through dynamic and culturally-rich programming.
