ROCO Connections: Journey to America

ROCO's Season 16 Connections series concludes with an intimate, livestreamed chamber concert from Holocaust Museum Houston, 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 five 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 several composers who immigrated to America as well, including Tom Hinck, Bohuslav Martinu, Erich Wolfgang Korngold, and Igor Stravinsky.
