Concertmaster Scott St. John will lead from the chair during ROCO’s annual conductorless concert. As well as the name of the concert, Legendary Love is the title of another world-premiere commission – a classical piece by Dan Visconti honoring Christian Kidd, lead singer of the Houston-based ’70s punk rock band, the Hates.

Antonin Dvorák’s Legends pairs with Wood Notes by William Grant Still, who was heavily influenced by Dvorák’s call to American composers to find their own unique voices. The performances also features two rags from American composer, William Bolcom, arranged for string orchestra.
