Eric Paetkau, Conductor | Scott St. John, Violin Soloist

The centrepiece of London Symphonia’s season opening concert is Gustav Holst’s magnificent work, The Planets. The program begins with A Pale Blue Dot, an ode to the Earth by Carl Sagan with music by Vangelis, re-orchestrated by Scott Good. London favourite Scott St. John then joins the orchestra for the colourful and evocative Violin Concerto by Erich Korngold, before The Planets completes this celestial journey.

The Royal Astronomical Society of Canada will curate images to be projected during The Planets.
