The Planets (Opening Night)
Music inspired by the heavens includes Debussy’s bewitching Clair de lune. In the centenary year of The Planets, the Orchestra welcomes the St. Paul’s Girls’ School Choir for whom its spell-binding finale was composed. Holst’s masterpiece explores the astrological influence of the planets on human personality and behavior. Young musicians of ZUMIX perform an original work echoing Holst’s fascination with the human psyche. Rain Date: Thursday, July 19. If it rains on July 19 as well, the concert will be held at an indoor location TBA.
