The celebrated ROCO Brass Quintet launches its own 3-concert series of performances at The MATCH (Midtown Arts and Theatre Center Houston).
“ROCO is built on the LEGO model,” explains Artistic Director, Alecia Lawyer, “wherein smaller groups like the ROCO Brass Quintet develop their own unique identity and their own concert series under the larger ROCO brand. This allows ROCO to reach much further and serve the entire Houston community, and strengthens the full orchestra’s artistic growth.”
Within the last year, the ROCO Brass Quintet has performed for multiple concert series throughout Houston, West University, and Fredericksburg, TX, and Lake Charles, LA. The Quintet performs with its own identity, yet carries ROCO’s signature trademark of musician/audience interaction. The ROCO Brass Quintet is distinct from other professional groups in Houston in that it champions modern classical music, while also performing music from the Renaissance and Baroque eras, as well as jazz music by American composers such as Duke Ellington. The ensemble offers a unique concert experience while upholding the familiar ROCO characteristics of virtuosic performance and approachability.
The ROCO Brass Quintet is comprised of George Chase, trumpet; Jason Adams, trumpet; Gavin Reed, horn; Thomas Hulten, trombone; and Will Samson, tuba.
