The Planets Plus Star Wars

After five sold out concerts in January, the Houston Symphony heads back to the stars with The Planets Plus Star Wars.

The concert is the product of a collaboration with NASA, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), and award-winning producer/director, Duncan Copp, to craft a film of the latest, high-definition planetary images that will accompany a live performance of Gustav Holst’s suite, The Planets. Assistant Conductor Brett Mitchell will take the conductor’s podium for this concert.

The Planets will be performed on the second half of the evening, while the first half is comprised of famed composer John Williams’ beloved film anthems: Star Wars, E.T. and Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

Tickets: $22-$109

Dates: July 16-July 17, 2010
