They like us. They really, really like us.
Without getting all Sally Field on you, it’s nice to know that all our efforts to present engaging concerts that feature thoughtful music get noticed — and how. Not that we need celeb status to feel secure about our performance. It’s just that it’s reassuring to know that we’re doing something right in your eyes and ears and those of exceptional local tastemakers.
What are we talking about?
The local classical station has dedicated a five-week series that features us, the River Oaks Chamber Orchestra, every Wednesday in August through Sept. 2. So tune in on Wednesdays at 8 pm to relive favorite moments from our classical season.
Here’s what the station has to say about us:
The River Oaks Chamber Orchestra (ROCO) is a forty-piece professional chamber orchestra that was founded in 2005 by Alecia Lawyer. A Juilliard-trained musician with an eclectic background as a performer, recording artist, adjunct professor and radio host, Ms. Lawyer had a vision to reimagine the orchestral experience for both audience and musicians. The result is ROCO: an orchestra of all-star musicians, distinguished conductors and contemporary composers who come together from all over the world to present unexpected classics, original compositions and delightful performances that dissolve the barriers between audience and orchestra.
Dissolve the barriers between audience and orchestra? We have that down.
Just in case you didn’t know: You can listen to us fiddle away anytime. You could say we’re on demand 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
