ROCO’s 13th season of its “Unchambered” series wraps up with Magical Inspirations.

ROCO violinist and concertmaster, Scott St. John, is the featured artist for this program and will be joined by clarinetist, Nathan Williams, and composer/pianist, Kevin Lau.

In addition to Bartok’s jazz-inspired Contrasts and Korngold’s gorgeous Much Ado About Nothing Suite, Kevin Lau is creating a new Disney-inspired work based on Hans Christian Andersen’s The Nightingale.

The work will be accompanied by original illustrations by artist, Amy Scheidegger and narration from Houston-based actor, Dave Harris.
