'The Planets': Quincy Symphony Orchestra adds visual component to season finale

QUINCY -- José Francisco Salgado's passion for astronomy began when he found one of his father's books on the moon landing.

"I was captivated by the fact that we visited another world and the technology that took us there," says Salgado. "I wanted to study space. I didn't even know the word ‘astronomy.'"

Following that passion, he become an astronomer at the Adler Planetarium in Chicago and an adjunct professor at Benedictine University. Salgado applied his skills in illustration and photography to create astronomy-themed artwork to inspire others.

One of his flagship projects is Science & Symphony Films, which consist of live performances of classical music accompanied by high-definition video.

The Quincy Symphony Orchestra has teamed up with Salgado for a Science & Symphony performance at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 21. Under the direction of Bruce Briney, the orchestra will perform Gustav Holst's "The Planets" as Salgado's critically acclaimed film plays on Morrison Theater's new 20-foot projection screen.
