Rockland — The Boston-based Castle Of Our Skins presents a streamed concert of string quartets by Black composers that showcase African American spirituals as part of the virtual Strand Family Series. This family friendly show that contains music, history and more will be available from May 1 through 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 to 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. Learn more at

A "Green Room: Artist Chat" interview with Castle Of Our Skins Artistic and Executive Director Ashleigh Gordon is Tuesday, April 27, at 6 p.m. streamed from the Strand’s YouTube and Facebook pages; it will then be available on the Strand’s website. During the chat, viewers will hear from Gordon about this important organization, and get a preview of their upcoming Strand virtual performance. Viewers will have the opportunity to ask questions via the comment section on Facebook or YouTube.

Pay-What-You-Can tickets are made possible by sponsorship support from Fuller Chevrolet. For tickets or more information, visit, email, or call (207) 594-0070. The Strand Theatre is located at 345 Main St.
