ROCO In Concert: Time for Hope
Houston, Texas
Friday, 27 September 2019 - 8:00 PM
Presenter: ROCO
Ensemble: ROCO
Conductor: Mei-Ann Chen
ROCO’s In Concert series, which showcases the full 40-piece orchestra, kicks off September 27 at Miller Outdoor Theatre with “Time for Hope”, a concert built around a world premiere by Lisa Bielawa entitled “Centuries in the Hours”, sung by mezzo-soprano Laurie Rubin. The text for the conductorless work comes from a collection of personal writings by American women of the 18th-20th centuries whose life circumstances rendered them historically invisible. The concert also highlights ROCO’s first-ever Artistic Partner, conductor Mei-Ann Chen, who will be returning each season for spirited collaborations. Chen will lead the orchestra in works by local Houston composer Alejandro Basulto, as well as Franz Joseph Haydn and Judith Shatin, whose piece will be accompanied by photos by Libbie Masterson.

All performances at Miller Outdoor Theatre are free! This is a ticketed event for the covered seating area. Free tickets are available (4 per person over age 16 while they last) at the Miller Outdoor Theatre box office the day of the performance between the hours of 10:30 AM-1:00 PM.
