Jan. Juneau Empire article quote from Riley Woodford
Juneau Symphony presenting "a visually adventurous rendition of Holst's popular suite "The Planets." "Holst's music in "The Planets" may conjure visions of the cosmos in the imagination, but the symphony will make sure the audience sees galaxies, nebulae and our solar system in the auditorium."

"The symphony has arranged to have about 50 astronomical images, photographed through the orbiting Hubble telescope and from an observatory in Australia, projected during the concert. Friends of the Marie Drake Planetarium also will be on hand in the lobby with hands-on displays and astronomy exhibits"
