“Cosmic Visions” is a concept exploring the aspects of Wisdom, Conversation, Passion, and Mystique using themes inspired by Holst’s “The Planets”.  The show opens with “Wisdom”, a dark and brooding theme inspired by “Saturn” that gradually builds to a dramatic impact.  This is followed by “Conversation” with themes from “Mercury”.  This segment is up-tempo with “Conversations” taking place between sections.  Next, we explore “Passion”.  The music is inspired by the opening few notes of “Venus” and this thematic idea is developed into a beautiful ballad.  We conclude the show with “Mystique” inspired by many of the themes from “Uranus”.  This is up-tempo with many contrasting sections, woodwind interludes, and driving percussion building to an exciting finale.
