The Planets

Quincy Symphony Orchestra, Quincy Symphony Chorus and Youth Chorus | 7:30 pm Saturday, April 21, 2018 | QJHS

Bancks Title TBA: Newly commissioned work
Gjeilo Sunrise Mass
Holst The Planets

The concert opens with a brilliant new overture composed in honor of Bruce Briney’s 10th Anniversary as QSO Conductor.  The combined choirs join the strings to perform II. Sunrise (Gloria); and IV. Identity & The Ground (Sanctus) from the spiritually uplifting Sunrise Mass. The movements develop from a sense of the cosmos to an affirmation of the earth.  The 70th Season ends with a spectacular fusion of music and galactic images which will keep you spellbound. Dr. Jose Francisco Salgado’s vivid videography is the perfect accompaniment to Holst’s The Planets.  Dr. Salgado will personally introduce this production from his Science & Symphony series.
