Conductor Andrés Cárdenes returns to open ROCO’s In Concert series—featuring the full 40-piece River Oaks Chamber Orchestra—with Gitcha Groove On. Pairing disparate musical styles like jazz and 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 jazz-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.

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 10:30am-1pm. If tickets remain at 1pm, the box office will re-open one hour before show time to distribute the remaining tickets. As always, open seating on the hill.

Produced by River Oaks Chamber Orchestra.
