The Planets

  • Date: Apr. 16, 2023
  • Time: 4:00 pm

Featuring cellist William Laney

20th century English composer Gustav Holst’s iconic musical depiction of our solar system, The Planets, is one of the most universally-popular works in the orchestral repertoire. The symphonic portrayals of each planet in Holst’s masterpiece will be augmented with projections of still shots from space, creating a multi-sensory experience!  The Long Bay Symphony also presents a world premiere by area composer and Coastal Carolina University music professor Donald Sloan. His Red Sky at Morning depicts the clash of different aspects of nature: the ocean and storms amidst the backdrop of the rising sun. Plus, outstanding young cellist and Long Bay Youth Symphony alumnus, William Laney, returns home to perform a classic Romantic concerto, Camille Saint-Saëns's Cello Concerto No. 2.

Tickets range from $28, $48, $53, $58 depending on seating section (fees included)
