Holst’s Voyage of Imagination: The Planets
With Dr. Paul Thomas
Saturday, March 4, 2023 at 7:30 p.m.
Embark on a journey through the Solar System, illuminated by the glorious music of Gustav Holst and stunning images from NASA. This concert features a full orchestral and choral performance of Holst’s The Planets, as well as a world premiere written by UW-Stout Professor Dr. Jerry Hui.

The Rise and Fall of Freedom
Saturday, May 13, 2023 at 7:30 p.m.
Experience three composers, each from the same nation, but living in different levels of freedom and oppression. Mussorgsky’s Prelude to Khovanshchina depicts a tranquil dawn scene, and Tchaikovsky expresses strong emotions and sentiments in his Romeo and Juliet. Inspired by the tyranny of living during Stalin’s reign, Shostakovich’s Fifth Symphony portrays the resistance to fascism and the fight for freedom.
