Symphony adds extra night of ‘Planets’

Due to popular demand, Seattle Symphony has added a third night of “SSO Performs ‘The Planets’ ” — a concert that features a performance of Gustav Holst’s work complemented by giant HD images of space from NASA. The concerts are July 12, 13 and 14. Ticket info here.

Also on the bill are 2 works used in the film “2001: A Space Odyssey”: Ligeti’s “Atmosperes” and Strauss’ “Also sprach Zarathustra.” Be honest — can you look at images from space without hearing Strauss’ fanfare in your head? Thought so.
