Event Information

On Friday, September 27 at 8pm and Saturday, September 28 at 5pm, the world premiere of composer-vocalist Lisa Bielawa’s song cycle Centuries in the Hours is presented by the River Oaks Chamber Orchestra (ROCO). This five-song orchestral cycle by Bielawa was composed expressly for blind mezzo-soprano Laurie Rubin, whose voice has been described by the LA Times as “darkly complex and mysteriously soulful.” The piece was composed with a conductorless orchestra in mind, and it is the centerpiece of ROCO’s 2019-2020 season opener, “Time for Hope.”
