On November 11, ROCO presents “Courageous Catalysts”, featuring a new commission by Michael Gandolfi. The new work, titled JFK 100, celebrates the 100th birthday of President John F. Kennedy and the courage of people who fight for change.
Michael Stern conducts the program, which includes Jean Sibelius’ Symphony No. 7 in C major, op. 105, the composer’s final published symphony, two ragtime favorites from William Bolcom, and Bruce Adolphe’s I Will Not Remain Silent, a violin concerto inspired by the life of German-American rabbi and civil rights leader Joachim Prinz. Throughout the concerto, the violin, played by ROCO concertmaster and featured soloist, Scott St. John, represents the voice of Prinz, while the orchestra represents opposing forces – Nazy Germany in the first movement and America during the Civil Rights era in the second movement.
