Principal trombonist and ROCO Brass Quintet member Thomas Hultén makes his debut as a ROCO soloist in this piece by Dorothy Gates (herself making her ROCO debut with this work), who is known, among other accolades, for her compositions for The Salvation Army Band. Conductor Victor Yampolsky leads the concert, which includes Vivaldi’s “Dresden” Concerto RV 577, and Arthur Honegger’s 4th Symphony, bringing ROCO’s 11th In Concert Series sliding into home.
