For performances, he was worked with numerous student and emerging composers, as well as established composers such as David Liptak, Steve Reich, and George Crumb. As a social justice worker, Green’s most important work has been with Castle of our Skins (COOS), which is a concert and education series organization dedicated to celebrating Black artistry through music.
