Gustav Holst’s The Planets is an epic orchestral suite that takes the listener on a majestic journey through the solar system. Join newly appointed Music Director David Neely for an intimate discussion in advance of the 3PM UMD Symphony Orchestra concert to find out how each of the seven movements represents the number of planets visible from earth at the time the piece was composed, taking on the astrological character of the planet it represents.
