Concert music lovers are in for a treat this weekend when Cleveland Orchestra Miami performs "The Planets," to close out its winter season.

The world-famous orchestra will perform Gustav Holst's showpiece on Friday and Saturday, March 21-22. The music will be enhanced with magnificent high-definition NASA images projected above on a large screen.

The program, which will be performed under the direction of Guerrero Giancarlo, the Miami orchestra's principal guest conductor, will also feature Jennifer Higdon's Grammy Award-winning "Percussion Concerto." The piece will be performed by celebrated percussionist Colin Currie, for whom the work was written and who premiered the piece in 2005.

The program will open with Mozart's boisterous "Overture to the Abduction."

Miami is now a winter home for the Cleveland Orchestra, which was founded in 1918 and is now one of the most sought-after performing ensembles in the world.
