HOLSTThe Planets Suite *Performance with imagesListen



Holst wrote his epic suite to depict the diverse characters of the planets in our night sky, and for such a monumental project he employs an enormous orchestra. In these final performances of our season, we’ll be projecting high resolution images of each planet while the orchestra plays. In collaboration with the Hong Kong Space Museum, there will be other stargazing activities in Tsimshatsui for this concert – cloud cover permitting!
