Holst’s iconic orchestral suite, The Planets, takes you to the stars for an exploration of astrology and mythology through music. Hear the menacing approach of Mars, the Bringer of War, the jubilant brass of Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity, and the mysterious tranquility of Neptune, the Mystic.

As you’re discovering Holst’s vision of each planet, you’ll also explore our solar system through a stunning video presentation created by the Modesto Junior College William R. Luebke Planetarium. This paring of extraordinary music and breathtaking visuals will make for an evening you won’t want to miss!
