In honor of the first responders and heroes of the COVID-19 crisis, the musicians of River Oaks Chamber Orchestra (ROCO) came together virtually from across the U.S. and Canada to perform ROCO's commission "Anthem of Hope" by Anthony DiLorenzo - offering hope and strength during this difficult time. This coming year, may you be safe, may you be healthy, and may you find peace. And please be kind - to yourself and others.
