HOLST'S THE PLANETS CONDUCTED BY ALSOP

The Philadelphia Orchestra
Orchestral Series
Saturday, July 6, 2024 at 6pm Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater

The Philadelphia Orchestra explores our solar system in Holst’s legendary and popular work The Planets in a program that also includes Copland’s American masterpiece Appalachian Spring Suite, led by Marin Alsop.

Did you know?

Gustav Holst’s The Planets devotes one movement to each of the solar system’s constituents except Pluto, not yet discovered when the piece was written (and its classification has been problematic), and Earth, with which listeners would have been sufficiently acquainted.
