Jazz composer Mary Lou Williams originally wrote her Zodiac Suite with each section inspired by a musical associate born under a different zodiac sign. MSO Artistic Partner Aaron Diehl premieres the complete version for full orchestra, after having presented four of the sections with the New York Philharmonic in 2021. In the second half, the MSO stays among the stars in Holst’s The Planets, delighting in the astrological characters of our solar system.


The MSO Steinway piano was made possible through a generous gift from Michael & Jeanne Schmitz
