ROCO Connections: Journey to America

ROCO’s Connections series concludes on March 11, livestreamed in partnership with Holocaust Museum Houston, and featuring a world premiere from Afghan composer Milad Yousufi, co-commissioned by ROCO and the Winsor Music Consortium.

The quintet, entitled My Journey to America, is a suite of five short movements, each preceded by a spoken narrative by Yousufi, describing his journey from his dramatic birth story in Kabul to becoming a refugee in New York City.

The performance will also feature chamber works by several composers who immigrated to America as well, including Tom Hinck, Bohuslav Martinu, Erich Wolfgang Korngold, and Igor Stravinsky.
