Jazz, classical music, performance art and film come together in this unique multimedia experience from the Jazz Orchestra of Philadelphia (JOP). A live performance of Gustav Holst’s orchestral suite The Planets, newly arranged by JOP and conducted by Terell Stafford, is performed over the premiere of director Duncan Copp’s film The Planets: An HD Odyssey, which he created in conjunction with NASA and Jet Propulsion Laboratories. Holst’s 100-year-old musical journey through the solar system will be realized as never before. The Jazztet of the United States Military Band serves as opening act.
