Castle of our Skins premieres, “Shine”

Philadelphia, PA, USA

Perelman Theater, Kimmel Center

7:30 PM

In celebration of their 10th anniversary, Castle of our Skins premieres "Shine," featuring original text by poet U-Meleni Mhlaba Adebo.

Born of a desire to foster cultural curiosity, Castle of our Skins is a concert and educational series dedicated to celebrating Black artistry through music. The Boston Musical Intelligencer praises the ensemble’s programmatic choices for complementing and reinforcing each other, and the “impressive performers” for communicating “directly and movingly with their audience.” Highlighting the ensemble’s PCMS debut program is the Philadelphia premiere of a new work (co-commissioned by PCMS) by flutist/ composer Allison Loggins-Hull.

Louise Toppin, coloratura soprano; Brian Dunbar, flute; Ashleigh Gordon, viola; Kyle P. Walker, piano
