UMW Philharmonic Orchestra's Spring Concert: Holst's The Planets with guest narrator George Takei @ Dodd Auditorium, University of Mary Washington  | Fredericksburg | Virginia | United States

Star Trek’s legendary Mr. Sulu joins Maestro Bartram at the helm in this intergalactic concert featuring Gustav Holst’s masterpiece The Planets. The 7-movement orchestral masterpiece by English composer Holst was written more than 100 years ago and features each of the then-known planets, along with their corresponding astrological character. Mr. Takei and the Philharmonic will boldly go where Fredericksburg has not gone before with this and other sci-fi classics, including the theme to 2001: A Space Odyssey, and award winning composer Michael Giacchino’s score to the recent film Star Trek: Into Darkness.
