WILLIAMS: Star Wars Suite
University of Illinois Women’s Glee Club, Andrea Solya, Conductor
In a stellar season finale, we travel from our own planet through our solar system and beyond. Gustav Holst brought his prodigious imagination and mystical sense to his most famous composition, The Planets, a tour de force for huge orchestra. Complementing Holst’s suite of planetary portraits will be selections from the original score to Star Wars by John Williams, one of the most popular film scores of all time.
MAYA BENYAS: Fantasy House Overture
