This show takes the title from Gustav Holst's classic work, "The Planets" and spins it. Because there actually isn't any content of Holst's in this show, it is all modern day music including "Jupiter" by Earth Wind and Fire, "The End of the World" by Matt Alber, and "Venus" by Bananarama! It is all done in the contemporary competitive marching band/drum corps style. This clever play on a great classic will make both your audience and judges smile.
