Mission Statement

Incorporated in 1985, ROVA:Arts, the non-profit umbrella organization of the Rova Saxophone Quartet, is devoted to extending the leading edge of musical expression and related artistic disciplines. Inspired and informed by the work of the Rova Saxophone Quartet, ROVA:Arts administers the ensemble's activities, presents work by other forward-looking artists, commissions new works by established and emerging composers, and furthers the public's understanding of adventurous art through education and outreach.

Description

Currently, the organization presents two annual concert events - Rovat? and New Music on the Mountain - which attract a diverse audience from throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. In planning our events, we strive to reach a broad segment of the community through the programming of outstanding artists of various ages and ethnicities, and of both genders. Likewise, in promoting events, we cultivate a diverse audience by advertising and seeking editorial coverage in both the mainstream press (e.g., San Francisco Chronicle) and alternative media (e.g., San Francisco Bay Guardian, KPFA-FM). In addition to presentation, Rova:Arts' achievements include the commissioning of more than 30 new works for saxophone quartet from artists as aesthetically diverse as minimalist composers Terry Riley and Pauline Oliveros, avant-garde composers Fred Frith and Anthony Braxton, experimental rock musician Lindsay Cooper, and jazz luminaries Jack DeJohnette and John Carter.
