Music in Holst’s “Planets” suite evokes strong emotions, such as power, charisma, awe and harmony.
On March 16 at 3 p.m., take in a “Composer Spotlight: Elliott Del Borgo and Friends,” presented by the Rockville Concert Band. Del Borgo, who wrote music for the 1980 Olympics in Lake Placid, N.Y., published more than 600 compositions for a variety of media. The concert is free but a $5 donation is appreciated.
The National String Symphonia makes its debut performance at the F.
