      PROGRAM

      Alvin Singleton, Secret Desire to be Black, for string quartet (1988)
      Florence Price, String Quartet in A Minor (1935) Boston Premiere

      For several thrilling seasons, Boston-based chamber ensemble Castle of Our Skins have been inventive champions of the music of Black American composers. This season, they bring an exciting program of music and performance to Calderwood Hall, including the Boston premiere of a string quartet by Florence Price—a 1906 graduate of New England Conservatory—and new choreography to Julius Eastman’s energetic work for ten cellos.
