Reggie Harris and Greg Greenway: Deeper than the Skin
with Kompozure, New Haven’s own a capella youth group, providing a short opener

Reggie Harris and Greg Greenway: Two friends… one Black, one White… one from the North… one from the South! Musicians, storytellers, students of history and world travelers… born 3 days apart! Two separate narratives forged into one powerful friendship aimed at finding common ground and helping others to do the same… Deeper That the Skin is an interactive, engaging invitation to take a step into a new reality. It’s an affirmation of the notion that a more perfect union begins…. with us!

These two performers will then again present their program the next day, adapted for a youth audience, thanks to a grant from the City of New Haven.
