ROCO’s Connections series concludes on March 11, livestreamed in partnership with Holocaust Museum Houston, and featuring a world premiere from Afghan composer Milad Yousufi, co-commissioned by ROCO and the Winsor Music Consortium.
The quintet, entitled My Journey to America, is a suite of seven short movements, each preceded by a spoken narrative by Yousufi, describing his journey from his dramatic birth story in Kabul to becoming a refugee in New York City.
The performance will also feature chamber works by Bohuslav Martinu and Igor Stravinsky, composers who immigrated to America as well, plus a work by Tim Hinck inspired by the experiences of migrant children.
