The Chattanooga Symphony & Opera Youth Orchestras (CSOYO) continue their 2013-2014 season on March 3 at 7:30pm at Brainerd Baptist Church with a concert performed by the Symphony Orchestra with Gary Wilkes conducting, featuring selections from The Planets by Gustav Holst. The massive work by Gustav Holst includes movements for each of the planets in our solar system. Movements to be performed in this concert include “Mars”, “Venus”, and “Jupiter.” This music, familiar to many people, was the direct inspiration for John Williams as he wrote the score for the Star Wars movies.
The CSOYO Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Sandy Morris, will open the concert with a variety of delightful works, from J. S. Bach to Russian Sailors’ Dance by Glière. Also featured on the program are the runner-ups (tied) for the 2013 CSOYO Concerto Competition: Chandler Custer and Justin Smith. This will be a “penny performance.” All children and students accompanied by a (paying) adult may attend for one penny each. Regular admission is $6 for adults, $4 for children, students, and seniors. Call 423.267.9011 for more information.
