The Crypt Sessions: ROCO at Church of the Intercession

Wine and food tasting at 7:00, Concert begins at 8:00P


ROCO is the future of the orchestra. They are the iPhone X to your local symphony’s vintage 80s walkie-talkie cell phone. They’re able to flex in size from 1 to 40 players based on what they’re doing – whether it be a brass quintet in a brewery, a theatrical version of Peter and the Wolf (In an actual zoo. With wolves. Promoting wolf conservation.), or as a full-on chamber orchestra, where they were one of the first to incorporate apps and livestreams into their performances. They’re all about building new connections to audiences, and changing how people experience classical music.
They’ve also commissioned more than 75 new pieces, and even though they’re based in Houston, they’ll send a crack team of 5 performers (including their founder, oboist, and total rockstar Alecia Lawyer) to play a program of music that they helped to create, ranging from a work inspired by a Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale to a trio that uses sticks, blocks and bottles as a rhythm section.
They’ll rock the house, tell some stories, and share some laughs along the way, and we promise that you’ll walk out with a spring in your step and a smile on your face.

ROCO will change what classical music means to you – they’ve been called “the most fun you can have with serious music,” and I guarantee you this is hands down the most fun you’re ever gonna have in a Crypt…There will be a wine tasting and hors d’ouevres reception at 7:00 (included in ticket price) before descending into the crypt.

“Reflections” by Sheryl Denbo at the Hebrew Tabernacle Gold Wing Art Gallery

Sheryl Denbo is inspired by that time just after sunrise and before sunset when the daylight is subtle and the colors are both soft and deep. She returns to her canvas and uses intense, fluid, metallic colors on papers and fabrics that she gets from around the world. Please join us for Friday evening Sabbath Services (7:30-8:30pm ) followed by the artist’s opening reception of the September-October, 2018 exhibit.  Wheelchair accessible. Exhibit open M,W,F and after religious services on Saturday and Sunday. Call 212-568-8304 or visit  HebrewTabernacle.org for further information. Admission free.
