Preview: University Symphony Orchestra Concert

The University Symphony Orchestra, UM’s most selective orchestra, is playing Holst’s “The Planets” and Mozart’s “Jupiter” tonight. I’m a fan of both Holst and Mozart, so I’m excited to go hear their work live in concert for what I think is the first time. I am also intrigued by the fact that this performance will be accompanied by a film made by José Francisco Salgado, an Emmy-nominated artist who explores the connections between art and science in his work. I have never attended a concert with a visual accompaniment before, so I can’t wait to see how the two parts complement each other. I also like the intersection of art and science myself, so I’ll be interested to see what scientific connections and principles make their way into the performance.

The concert is tonight (January 25, 2017), in Hill Auditorium at 8pm. Attendance is free. There will also be a panel discussion with Salgado at 7pm in the lower lobby.
