The transit of Venus today!

A rare crossing of Venus between the Earth and our sun begins in about an hour. The New Mexico Philharmonic Orchestra is having a watch party out at Balloon Fiesta Park beginning at 4 p.m.—there will be a performance of Holst’s “The Planets” suite and other spacy compositions. Read Clifford Grindstaff’s article about it here.

The New Mexico Philharmonic Orchestra performs The Planets while Venus transits

Classical music has nearly been relegated to soundtrack status; it’s often playing while something else is happening. Few of us spend quality headphone time with Bartok. Amazing classical music in movies or TV gets used as a backdrop or part of the staging, thereby chaining it to pop culture. Most people can't hear Liszt's “Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2” without thinking of Tom and Jerry. Other times a movie is lifted by the music beyond its small budget and toward the heavens, as Star Wars was elevated by John Williams’ soundtrack.

She is now the new Russo Chair of creative writing at UNM. Levin's first book, In the Surgical Theatre, won the 1999 APR/Honickman First Book Prize, among many others.
