Music of the Stars Takes Audience on Planetary Journey

On March 15, the ISO’s Music of the Stars performance welcomed Adrian Wyard, Visual Artist and his presentation, “The Planets Live!” as musicians presented Holst’s epic work, The Planets. Thanks to partners at Polk County Public Schools and many home school and private school groups, Adrian was also able to share his images with more than 3,500 students during School Day Enrichment programs.

In addition to The Planets, audiences were treated to a performance from 2015 Young Artist Competition winner Lauren Thielen and board president Greg Sale presented her with a $1,000 scholarship. As part of the continued 50 anniversary celebration, Young Artist Competition winner from 1970, Barry Zimmerman also shared a solo!
