The local ensemble Castle of our Skins crafts programs exploring the influence of spirituals on classical music, and particularly on Black American composers. Also in this roundup, the "Boston Peeps," the ProkoPiaf concerto, and an amazing trumpeter who doesn't even use a trumpet!
It's a video... but it's a graphic novel... but it's also an opera? It sure is, and it's awesome. Also in this roundup, harpists have their moment, a TikToker turns names into music, and Yo-Yo Ma out-Yo-Yo Mas himself, all ahead!
