DM SYMPHONY - SEASON FINALE: THE FIFTH & THE PLANETS
Beethoven’s ominous four-note opening motif, often considered the musical manifestation of “fate knocking at the door,” opens a gripping, powerful work that is among the most well-known in classical music. Hear the raw power and the dramatic triumph of this masterpiece. After intermission, Holst’s exuberant evocation of our solar system conjures the luminous night sky as well as the mythological deities associated with each of The Planets. Accompanied by incredible high-resolution photos, the swirling energy of Holst’s composition conjures our unfathomable universe in a thrilling Season Finale.

"The fact that our son was working with Broadway professionals and getting vocal and acting lessons from people who actually acted on Broadway was stunning."
