Science meets Art - Science Museum

In April 2016 the Royal College of Music gave visitors to the Science Museum in London an amazing surprise - a 'pop up' performance of Mars and Jupiter from Holst’s The Planets.

This event became a vivid demonstration of how music has the power to unite art and science. The event was staged in the Making the Modern World Gallery in the Science Museum which charts 250 years of science and technology, featuring iconic items that have shaped our society. The Royal College of Music is one of the world’s great conservatoires, training gifted musicians from all over the world for international careers as performers, conductors and composers. Music: Excerpts from Mars and Jupiter from Holst’s The Planets, arranged and conducted by Ben Palmer.
