In Concert: "Gitcha Groove On!" Also Live Streamed! says
Conductor Andrés Cárdenes returns to open ROCO’s In Concert series — featuring the full 40-piece River Oaks Chamber Orchestra — with performances of a program titled “Gitcha Groove On."

Sept. 26, 2015 at St. John the Divine.
4pm composer talk and 5pm concert

Repeated outdoors
Sept. 27, 2015 at Miller Outdoor Theater.
7:30 pm concert

Mixing disparate musical styles like rock, blues and latin with classical, “Gitcha Groove On” takes its name from ROCO’s 44th world premiere commission of the same name by Rick Robinson (in his ROCO debut).

It’s a pop-culture-infused classical commission for the full orchestra plus trapset, the product of ROCO winning the New Music Box and ASCAP “Music Alive” Partnership award.

Cardénes has chosen to pair this piece with José Pablo Moncayo’s “Huapango,” a chamber orchestra piece based on folk songs from the composer’s native Mexico, and both Robinson and Moncayo have written pieces rooted in their respective heritages. Poulenc’s “Sinfonietta” and Erich Wolfgang Korngold’s “Much Ado About Nothing” complete the program.

ROCOrooters, a music education and childcare program for children, will be available at this performance. Drop-off will be at 4:30 pm and pick-up will be at 10:00 pm. Parents are free to grab dinner before returning to pick up their children. The cost for ROCOrooters is $35 for the first child and $25 for each additional child.
