Guest conductor Sarah Hicks, Principal Pops Conductor of the Minnesota Orchestra, makes her Boston Pops debut leading an “out of this world” program on Friday May 23rd and Saturday May 24th 8 PM at Symphony Hall in Boston. Featuring music inspired by outer space, it will be hosted by the legendary original Mr. Spock, Leonard Nimoy. Music will include Holst’s The Planets (performed alongside a film by astronomer Jose Francisco Salgado, PhD, featuring NASA visuals), the theme from Star Trek, the classical works (Also Sprach Zarathustra and Blue Danube Waltz) popularized in 2001:A Space Odyssey, and John Williams’s music from Star Wars, E.T., and Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
