Symphony Orchestra to Perform Holst’s ‘The Planets’ Nov. 18
The Syracuse University Symphony Orchestra (SUSO) will present a concert featuring Gustav Holst’s “The Planets,” Op. 32, on Tuesday, Nov. 18, at 8 p.m. in the Rose and Jules R. Setnor Auditorium, Crouse College. The concert is free and open to the public.
This year marks the centennial of “The Planets,” a suite for large orchestra written by Holst from 1914-1916. It consists of seven movements named after planets of the solar system: “Mars, the Bringer of War”; “Venus, the Bringer of Peace”; “Mercury, the Winged Messenger”; Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity”; “Saturn, the Bringer of Old Age”; “Uranus, the Magician”; and “Neptune, the Mystic.”
The SUSO performs under the direction of James Tapia, faculty member in the Rose, Jules R. and Stanford S. Setnor School of Music in the College of Visual and Performing Arts.

Campus parking availability is subject to change; call 315-443-2191 for current information or for more information about the concert.
