A bit of musical astrology, Holst's The Planets conjure the emotions of each planet on the human psyche, whether that's the aggression and militancy of Mars or the jolliness of Jupiter. The piece has become Holst's best-known composition due to its emotional scope and grandeur, a piece of music to touch the soul. Respighi's orchestration of Johann Sebastian Bach's famous Passacaglia in C Minor and Tomasini's dazzling Trumpet Concerto with the FWSO's own principal trumpet, Kyle Sherman, will open the concert.

The concert will feature conductor Miguel Harth-Bedoya, the Women of Voices of Fort Worth, and Wesleyan Women’s Chorus of Texas Wesleyan University.
