ROCO Unchambered: Kaleidoscope

The Unchambered series continues Saturday, February 13 at 5:00 pm Central, with “Kaleidoscope,” the second performance of ROCO’s musician-curated Unchambered series—streamed live in partnership with and from The Alta Arts, an organization celebrating cultural arts and architecture in southwest Houston. Featuring ROCO’s principal winds, the nature-inspired program will feature two world premieres by ROCO’s composer-in-residence Alyssa Morris: “Konza Parable” for wind quintet, inspired by the seasonal fires of Kansas’s Konza Prairie, and “Shine” for oboe and percussion. Valerie Coleman's blues fantasia "Red Clay & Mississippi Delta", plus William Grant Still's "Miniatures for Woodwind Quintet" complete the program.
