The Planets

I just saw a flyer for a performance by the Western Australian Youth Music Association of The Planets by Gustav Holst.

I’m only a casual fan of classical music but I have a recording of The Planets and it’s music that I often use when programming.

Readers probably know or recognise some parts of The Planets, particularly “Mars”, which is used in many science fiction films/TV such as Star Trek and Space: Above and Beyond, as well as “Jupiter”, from which the melody for the Rugby Union song, “World in Union” originates.

The performance is on Sunday May 31st. Let me know if you are interested in coming along.
