This year’s show is entitled Star-Cross’d. Two households, both alike in dignity, across the cosmos, where we lay our scene. Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean, a pair of star-cross’d lovers come to light.
We tell their story through the timeless suite The Planets by Gustav Holst. Through our uninterrupted performance you will hear themes representing every planet, from the flowing vocal melody of Neptune to the combative percussion of Mercury. As the show progresses, observe the forbidden adulation between the two performers representing the majestic beauty of Jupiter and the devoted soldier of Mars. The which if you with patient ears attend, what here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend.
The band is under the direction of Steve Straka and Assistant Band Director Adam Tucker.
