Austin Civic Orchestra, Out of this World!

Last night the family and I enjoyed the Austin Civic Orchestra. The concert was titledĀ Out of this World!, and featured Gustav Holst’sThe Planets“:

  1. Mars, the Bringer of War
  2. Venus, the Bringer of Peace
  3. Mercury, the Winged Messenger
  4. Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity
  5. Saturn, the Bringer of Old Age
  6. Uranus, the Magician
  7. Neptune, the Mystic

Our two boys (9 yrs and 10 yrs) loved it!

I asked my eldest if it was like he imagined; his reply was no, he assumed it would be in a school cafeteria. Needless to say, he was impressed at the scene.
