River Oaks Chamber Orchestra Presents “Pacific Crossings” says
Guest conductor Edwin Outwater leads the River Oaks Chamber Orchestra in a Kyo-Shin-An Arts and ROCO co-commission from composer James Matheson. The world premiere performance of Matheson’s “Concerto for Two Shakuhachi: The Age of Air” marks the 50th original composition commissioned by ROCO in the ensemble’s 11-year history.

The work — performed by shakuhachi virtuosos James Nyoraku Schlefer and Akihito Obama — portrays a blend of East and West cultures with the addition of the early Japanese end-blown flute that’s often used in Zen meditation and traditional Japanese folk music.

Vivian Fung’s “Pizzicato” and Sibelius’ “Symphony No. 3” complete the program.

Tickets: $35 general admission; $25 seniors; $15 students; ROCOrooters music education and childcare is available during/after this concert.

With a ticket to this concert, guests receive a special free chamber concert at the Asia Society Texas Center on Nov. 12. Please RSVP at 713-496-9901.
