About the event

Experience  a shattering rendition of Holst’s epic Planets suite, brought to life  by 90 musicians of the FILMharmonic Orchestra with Maestro Francis  Choiniere at the helm. Join the orchestra on a voyage to outer space,  revisiting Holst’s quintessential themes, paired with contemporary  galactic soundtracks. Rounding out the space-themed soiree are  selections from two of Hollywood’s finest composers: Hans Zimmer and the  inimitable John Williams. Works featured include music from Interstellar, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, and Star Wars. Earth to Holsts: this is a musical expedition not to be missed!
