Castle of our Skins welcomes South African Composer Dr. Bongani Ndodana-Breen for its third Music Ensemble in Residence. Highlighting Ndodana-Breen’s works for piano and strings, this program centers around the piano quintet Safika: Three Tales of African Migration, which takes listeners on a journey of forced expulsion, dislocation, and the musical movement of a people from one space and culture to another.
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.
