The Diablo Symphony Orchestra presents its first Digital Premiere streaming event—featuring Gustav Holst’s “The Planets”—on Thursday, August 6, at 7 pm. This first in a series of DSO digital concerts will stream on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CP7I84Hqkiw (or on the www.diablosymphony.org website, where you can access the concert by clicking anywhere on the picture under the heading “DSO Digital Premier: The Planets”). This is the first release of the DSO’s 2019 performance of Holst’s seven-movement orchestral suite invoking our solar system. The orchestra was joined by the local choir WomenSing in the suite’s final movement, “Neptune, the Mystic,” in performances on February 22, 2019, at Rossmoor and February 24, 2019, at the Lesher Center for the Arts. Log in at 7 p.m. for an introduction by Music Director and Conductor Matilda Hofman as well as “live chat” opportunities for questions from the audience. Come join in with that question about an instrument or musical work you’ve always wanted to know about! “The Planets”, recorded during the Lesher Center performance, will begin at 7:30 p.m. For more information, email info@diablosymphony.org
