Brevard Symphony Orchestra: The Planets


Our 66th season opens with a Big Bang as we continue celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing.

We blast off with Mothership by Grammy Award-winning composer Mason Bates. Excerpts from John Williams’ iconic score for Close Encounters of the Third Kind will leave us all asking: Are we alone in the universe? Gustav Holst said this about his astrologically inspired masterpiece: “…the music of The Planets enables the mind to acquire some comprehension of the vastness of space where rational understanding fails.” The Planets premiered over 100 years ago and has mesmerized us ever since.
