ROCO’s musician-curated Unchambered series concludes with the ROCO Brass Quintet, streaming live from MATCH (Midtown Arts & Theater Center Houston).
Presenting contemporary works for brass, the program ranges from Joan Tower’s “Copperwave” and Jonathan Bailey Holland’s “Introit,” to Robert Dennis’s “Blackbird Variations”, a work based on the poem “Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird” by Wallace Stevens, and an arrangement of the Beatles’ “Blackbird” by Seb Skelly.
ROCOrooters In The Cloud is available in conjunction with all of ROCO’s In Concert and Unchambered performances during the 2020-2021 season. The program includes free, downloadable learning activities so the whole family can enjoy the concerts together. Click HERE for more info.
