Landmarks’ dance concerts always incorporate music of many cultures, reflecting the extraordinary diversity of today’s Boston. Black and Latinx composers—contributors to the classical concert tradition for centuries—have played a central role in defining the essential sound of American music. Special guests Castle of our Skins and violinist Gabriela Díaz bring virtuosity and vitality to several heart-pounding works of the Americas.
