Have you ever thought that the solar system is just like one big molecule and...oh, you haven't? Maybe it's just us. What was I saying? Oh, yeah. As part of The British Are Coming...2006-2007 season, Symphony Arlington presents Gustav Holst's The Planets. This particular concert promises to be a sort of Pink Floyd laser light show for the cultured and educated. The suite, in which each movement musically describes a "mood picture" of Mars, Venus, Mercury or Jupiter, is performed live by the symphony and will be accompanied by a synchronized video display on two Jumbotrons. Space out 8 p.m. Thursday at the MetroCenter, 1343 W. Pioneer Parkway in Arlington. Tickets are $15 to $45. Call 817-385-0484 or visit SymphonyArlington.org.
