Opening Night: The Planets

The Knoxville Symphony opens its 84th season by taking to the stars, in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing. Audiences will instantly recognize Johann Strauss, Jr.'s 'On The Beautiful Blue Danube' from the film “2001:  A Space Odyssey” and Debussy’s 'Clair de lune,' plus contemporary composer Missy Mazzoli’s “These Worlds in Us,” inspired by James Tate’s poem, “The Lost Pilot.” Gustav Holst's iconic, celestial showpiece, "The Planets", will include visual accompaniment featuring spectacular NASA media and original animations by visual artist Adrian Wyard cued live to follow the evening's performance.
