ROCO will kick off its18th season with Family, part of the Albert and Margaret Alkek Foundation In Concert Series, featuring the full 40-piece chamber orchestra led by Artistic Partner Mei-Ann Chen, in a program inspired by community, family, and hope, honoring Houston’s cultural diversity.

Juan Pablo Contreras’ Mariachitlán will take the audience to the colorful streets of the composer’s birthplace in Jalisco, Mexico, featuring a guest mariachi band, and the Vietnamese folk song Bèo dạt mây trôi by composer Hòa nhạc tells the story of longing to be reunited with missing loved ones.

Grammy-nominated guitarist Mak Grgic features as soloist in the world premiere of a ROCO-commissioned guitar concerto written by Michael Abels (composer for the films Get Out and Us), echoing themes of strife and healing. Ludwig van Beethoven’s dramatic Symphony No. 5 (nicknamed the “Fate Symphony”) closes the evening, reminding us that fate is in our hands and encouraging us to write our own stories.
