About The Planets
The New Texas Symphony Orchestra is in its 15th year of presenting a season of entertaining concerts for music lovers. Our 2018-2019 season, SNAPSHOTS is no exception. Join us for Sundays at the Symphony, an afternoon of great orchestral music presented at the Moody Performance Hall in the Dallas Arts District.
Concert repertoire includes works by Mendelssohn and Saint Saens, and features The Planets by Gustav Holst.
The Planets is a seven-movement orchestral suite where each movement is named after a planet of the Solar System. Holst’s inspiration came from astrology and horoscopes, not astronomy, so the suite expresses ideas and emotions associated with the influence of the planets on human behavior and the natural world.
