ROCO Brass Quintet - "Music from the Americas"
|Houston||Concert / Show||George Chase|
|Program 3 (April 7 at the MATCH, April 9 at The Woodlands UMC)|
“Music from the Americas”
In their third and final program, the RBQ presents recent works of composers from North and South America, beginning with a fanfare from Jennifer Higdon. David Sampson’s Chesapeake (written in 2010) is a programmatic work, depicting a series of sailing trips off the coast of Maryland. Osvaldo Lacerda was a Brazilian composer who wove folk music into his very colorful and charming 4 movement work for brass. Finally, the RBQ is thrilled to announce our first commissioned work for brass quintet; our friend, Houston-based musician and composer Paul English, will be writing a piece for the group, and we are very excited to share this new work with our audiences in Houston and The Woodlands.
