Roc Fargas




Since April 2023, Roc Fargas is a scholarship holder of the Conducting Forum of the German Music Council. Roc has conducted orchestras such as the Jena Philharmonic, Anhaltische Philharmonie Dessau, Staatskapelle Weimar, Philharmonie Südwestfalen, Erzgebirgische Philharmonie, Thüringen Philharmonic, Hradec Králové Philharmonic, Cardiff Sinfonietta, Ruse Philharmonic, Sofia Philharmonic and the Orquestra Vigo 430. Roc has assisted conductors Juanjo Mena, Sir Mark Elder, Gianandrea Noseda, Simon Gaudenz, Nicolás Pasquet, Jac van Steen, Trevor Pinnock, Edward Gardner and Laurence Cummings.

‘I simply could not have managed this without Roc’s talents to reorchestrate, listen and instantly recognise issues regarding tuning, ensemble and how to fix them, and perhaps most importantly how to impart good cheer to his colleagues and give them the confidence to be able to give their best.’ – Laurence Cummings, Music Director of the Academy of Ancient Music
