Spacing Out

The Planets in HD

If college taught us anything, it’s that nothing inspires recreational drug use like music accompanied by images of outer space. But don’t go busting out your copies of Dark Side and Star Trek just yet. The Orange County Performing Arts Center has something way better. The Pacific Symphony is performing the dramatic music of Holst live to accompany high-definition images of our vast, ever-expanding universe, projected on two extra-large screens for your sensory enjoyment. And you can relive your youth in high style: Witness the mind-expanding spectacle at OCPAC’s beautiful Renee and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall.
