Enjoy the melodic scenery of flutist Brook Ferguson at ROCO’s Unchambered: Force of Nature at MATCH in Midtown on Saturday, December 8, 2018.
The next installment of ROCO’s Unchambered series, Force of Nature features principal flute, Brook Ferguson, showcasing nature-themed music for flute, oboe, viola, cello, and piano.
Force of Nature includes George Crumb’s Vox Balaenae (Voice of the Whale) for electric flute, cello and amplified piano, Michael Gandolfi’s Gepetto’s Workshop, and a new commission by Stephanie Ann Boyd.
Part of a new series presented by River Oaks Chamber Orchestra, Unchambered features ROCO soloists or small ensembles in the personal setting of MATCH. Force of Nature marks the second of four programs to come.
ROCO is a dynamic and innovative professional music ensemble that flexes from one to 40 players from all over the US and Canada, with guest artists from around the world.
Performing intimate concerts in dozens of venues, ROCO’s musicians don’t just give concerts – they challenge preconceptions, create extraordinary experiences, and foster new relationships with audiences through the language of music.
Expanding the repertoire, ROCO has premiered over 65 commissions from living American composers. ROCO embraces technology, with free worldwide concert live-streams and real-time artist commentary via a smartphone app, as well as on-demand recordings of past concerts via the Listening Room.
A vital part of the community, ROCO concert DVDs are sent to nursing homes and hospitals to bring music to those immobile communities, and their music education/childcare program attracts multigenerational audiences.
