September 11, 7:30pm
(Some of) Holst’s “The Planets”

with Dr. Katherine de Kleer, Professor of Planetary Sciences, Caltech

Holst wrote “The Planets” because of his interest in astrology but there are fascinating connections between the music of "Mars," "Jupiter" and "Uranus" and the physical characteristics of the planets. Dr. Katherine de Kleer will provide beautiful videos and images as well as “out of this world” information about three of Holst's "Planets" and will join us for a post-concert reception and Q & A session
