About the ROCO String Quartet
With the launch of this String Quartet series, ROCO is featuring chamber ensembles drawn from within the full 40-piece chamber orchestra. Chamber music has been called “music among friends” because of its intimate nature. This series allows ROCO to expand relationships among musicians, with composers, and with the audience by presenting musical conversations that include contemporary as well as classic repertoire.
Ticket prices are $20 general admission, $10 for students. Tickets may be purchased at www.rocohouston.org
