ROOK is a mixed instrument ensemble dedicated to the music of the 16th and 17th centuries. Rook explores this early music with a surprising combination of brass and string instruments that, while popular 400 years ago, creates colors that are missing from modern music making.
From Chicago, ROOK was selected as one of three ensembles to participate in the Carnegie Hall Professional Training Workshop with L’Arpeggiata.
Program Notes, Bigraphical Information, and Venue Details will be shown here shortly.
