In 2022, Castle of Our Skins completed a month-long residency at musiConnects, learning and celebrating the life and artistry of Langston Hughes.

Students experimented with musicalizing Hughes' already jazzy-style of expression.

The words and sounds they created were shared with a composer Joi Harper who created an original work for soprano, piano and student strings.

Spirit, mC's winter concert, will feature the world premiere of Harper's piece, Aspirations and Sorrows, presented alongside mC's annual play-through of Deep River, ​and a student solo showcase.

Featuring: Nina Anderson, soprano & Kenneth Griffith, piano

-Joi Harper's Aspirations and Sorrows (on texts by mC˛ students) for soprano, piano, and strings
-Songs for voice & piano by Robert L. Owens, H. Leslie Adams, Florence Price, H.T. Burleigh, and William Grant Still (inspired by Langston Hughes)
-Deep River, arranged by Betsy Hinkle & solo performances by mC students

​Sunday, March 26, 2:30pm, St. John's Church in Jamaica Plain.
