"The Planets" by the Grossmont Symphony

Join the members of the Grossmont Symphony Orchestra & Master Chorale at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 26, in the second concert of the 2012-2013 performance season entitled, “The Planets,” a multimedia performance combining music with high-definition graphics and animations from NASA and Eurospace.

Grossmont College astronomy professor Philip Blanco has prepared a presentation to be viewed on the two large screens in the sanctuary of St. John of the Cross Catholic Church in Lemon Grove. The orchestra and chorus, performing in the dark, will present the opening movement of Haydn’s “The Creation,” entitled “Representation of Chaos.”  This will be immediately followed by a full performance of Gustav Holst’s ‘The Planets.”

Entertaining as well as educational for all ages, the one-performance only concert is free and open to the public. The church is at 8086 Broadway in Lemon Grove. A free-will offering will be accepted.
