Blast off to menacing Mars, jolly Jupiter and beyond in this breathtaking feast for the senses! Holst’s beloved sonic odyssey is paired with staggering high-definition footage from recent NASA explorations of our solar system, bringing you up close to the wonders of the galaxy. Renowned Houston Symphony Conductor Emeritus Hans Graf leads this space-themed program which kicks off with music of Ligeti, famously used in Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey.
