Restrictions: All Ages


Garry Walker Conductor
Ilya Gringolts Violin

John Adams - Short Ride in a Fast Machine
Ross Harris - Violin Concerto
Holst - The Planets

Start the season with a bang! This gala concert blasts off with John Adams’ breathtaking fanfare for orchestra, Short Ride in a Fast Machine. Ilya Gringolts makes a welcome return to star in the powerful, lyrical Violin Concerto by former APO composer-in-residence Ross Harris.

Gustav Holst was fascinated with astrology, and each movement of his suite The Planets depicts a heavenly influence on humanity, such as the harsh military rhythms of Mars, the Bringer of War, the exuberance of Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity, and the unearthly fade-out of Neptune, The Mystic.
