Event description
Christ Church Cathedral presents organist Mark McDonald's magical performance of Holst's "The Planets," transcribed for organ by Peter Sykes

About this event

The Planets

Friday, June 3 at 7.00 p.m

Performer: Mark McDonald, The Cathedral Choirs

Guest Speaker: Dr. Alan Batten, Astronomer

Drawing attention to the vastness of the solar system has a way of highlighting humanity’s need to steward its small home carefully. In a virtuosic organ transcription by Peter Sykes, the cathedral’s resident organist takes the audience on a tour from Mars (the bringer of war) to Neptune (the mystic), all in Gustav Holst’s inimitable musical language.

Tickets: General $25 (plus fees) / Students with ID $10 at the door only / Children under 13 free

ABOUT THE EARTH SONGS SERIES

Christ Church Cathedral and the Emily Carr String Quartet are thrilled to be announcing Earth Songs: Music for Climate Justice, their third concert series since their partnership began in 2020. This series of six concerts from February to June will feature one of Canada’s top quartets and the cathedral’s Wolff organ played by a lineup of international artists. The series will draw attention to the need for personal action to reverse the climate crisis and will include brief talks from climate focused NPOs and advocates with an opportunity to support. Each concert will focus on a different facet of our relationship with the natural world, aiming to educate, entertain, and inspire change. Learn more at www.christchurchcathedral.bc.ca/earthsongs.
