Anyone Out There?
Saturday November 12, 2022 @ 7:30 pm
All Systems GO! T-Minus 10 … 9… 8… Get ready for an exploratory mission of our solar system as the SLS presents an out-of-this-world program! Holst’s The Planets is the main event, each movement concentrating on the astrological, rather than astronomical significance of our solar system.
7… 6…5… Complementing this massive work will be two shorter astronomical works, Haydn’s Overture toIl mondo della luna (The World of the Moon!) is perhaps the earliest example of a space opera (move over Star Wars!) This rarely heard work is full of Haydn’s wit and classical charm.
4… 3… Our own planet is not neglected either. Mason Bates Mothership will highlight the orchestra, and our home planet of Earth, with youthful and optimistic energy and some surprise solo appearances from our orchestra members.
…2… 1… Liftoff! The universe awaits you at Libby Gardner Hall!
