ROCO in concert: A Stitch in Time
Conductor Jeri Lynne Johnson makes her ROCO debut, leading the Texas premiere of Mark Adamo’s Last Year for cello and orchestra, featuring ROCO Principal Cellist Richard Belcher, with each movement representing one of the four seasons. Winding up the program are Hilary Purrington’s FIFteen Project commission Threshold, Jonathan Peters’ Arthropod Suite - accompanied by images from the Houston Museum of Natural Science - and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 8 in F Major, whose 2nd movement parodies the metronome.
The concert will also be livestreamed at ROCO.org, Facebook, and YouTube.
