The project was initiated by Shreveport Symphony maestro Michael Butterman as a fusion between visual artists and the orchestra.
Buttermand and Joyce, with the aid of Pam Atchison, commissioned 8 new works based upon interpretations of Holst's symphony The Planets. The commissions:
Saturn: Nadine Charity
Uranus: Jane Heggen
Mercury: Don Alexander
Neptune: Laura Noland - Harter
Jupiter: Michael Harold
Mars: Bill Joyce
Venus: Mary Louise Porter
The exhibit will oscillate Through June 14.
And look for a connection at the Shreveport Symphony Orchestra's concert at 7:30 pm the same night, Riverview Theater. Called Ocular Odyssey, it will integrate some part of the visual artists' work in its performance of The Planets, by Holst.
