Conductor: THOMAS WILKINS, Music Director, Omaha Symphony | Bio >
... Wilkins is the model of what a modern maestro should be: an expert conductor who’s capable of directing a fine orchestra in the direction that he wants.
- Review from Memphis Symphony performance
... all eyes were on Wilkins, an assured, elegant presence on and off the podium.
– Review from National Symphony Orchestra performance
Prepare for liftoff. Our “out-of-this-world” musical odyssey begins with Mozart’s 41st and final symphony. This commanding work is a testament to Mozart’s legacy with its genius, perfection, and expressiveness. It is aptly titled the Jupiter symphony as the final capstone of one of the undisputed giants of classical music. Journey through the solar system with Holst’s massive tone poem, The Planets. Belligerent Mars provides a stirring opening with its percussive intensity. Joined by the beauty of Venus, jocular Mercury, jovial Jupiter, wise Saturn, formidable Uranus, and the enigmatic and alluring Neptune, this suite is one of the true gems of classical music. Conductor Thomas Wilkins -- having led a storied career spanning three decades -- is the perfect artist to lead this stellar performance.
