The York Symphony Orchestra begins the 24-25 season with Gustav Holst’s beloved The Planets. Each movement highlights the seven planets from mystifying Neptune to war mongering Mars. John Williams’ famous Star Wars’ Main Title transports you among the stars to the Star Wars universe. Influenced by his Mexican roots, Arturo Márquez’s Paisajes bajo el signo de cosmos exudes compelling melodies and pervasive rhythm. Featuring Kenneth Osowski and Gretchen Dekker on pianos, Francis Poulenc composed Concerto for Two Pianos & Orchestra to purely entertain with charming melodies and jazz themes.
