ROCKLAND —  As part of the virtual Strand Family Series, The Boston-based “Castle Of Our Skins” will present a streamed concert of string quartets by Black composers that showcase African American spirituals. This family friendly show contains music, history and more. It will be available from May 1 - 16.

Tickets to stream the show are available on the Strand Theatre website, and are “Pay-What-You-Can;” ticket prices are set at $20, $10, $5, or $0, so that cost is not a barrier to attend. Performance time is 45 - 60 minutes. 

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.
