Join ROCO as the Albert and Margaret Alkek Foundation In Concert series continues with a celebration of "Friends", on February 18 at The Church of St. John the Divine! This concert truly showcases the orchestra, as the ensemble performs conductorless, with Artistic Partner and Concertmaster Scott St. John leading from the chair. Underlining themes of friendship and hope, the concert features the premiere of Brian Raphael Nabors' "Upon Daybreak", a ROCO co-commission as part of New Music USA’s Amplifying Voices program, inspired by Maya Angelou’s poem “A Brave and Startling Truth,” along with Antonin Dvorak's early favorite "Serenade for Strings" and Joachim Raff's vivacious "Sinfonietta". Completing the program, the resilient African-American spiritual "Keep Me From Sinking Down" spotlights Scott St. John, in Samuel Coleridge-Taylor's powerful orchestral setting featuring solo violin.*ROCOrooters is also back in-person, offering a night out for you and music education and childcare for the kids!
