Maestro Bairos has programmed this Tribute Concert for one of his musical heroes; Clyde Roller. Jacomo performed under the baton of Clyde Roller when he attended Interlochen Center for the Arts. Clyde Roller conducted the Amarillo Symphony for 14 years and is credited along with beloved Eddie Melin for literally saving The Amarillo Symphony from disbanding in 1941. Each selection performed in this concert was a Clyde Roller favorite.
CELLIST GABRIEL CABEZAS has appeared as soloist with the New York Philharmonic, Cleveland Orchestra, Chicago Symphony, the National Symphony of Costa Rica, the Pittsburgh Symphony, the New World Symphony, and the Nashville Symphony, among others. His television appearances include performances with Yo-Yo Ma at "The Travis Smiley Show" and "Good Morning America", and with Bela Fleck in "From the Top" - Carnegie Hall."
