Maestro Cumming said, "The opportunity for us to play in the magnificent space at the Cathedral of Saint Joseph is always a great experience-no less so this time around, as the Hartt Symphony Orchestra explores great music for organ and orchestra. Of course many people will recognize the first two minutes of Strauss's Also Sprach Zarathustra from "2001: A Space Odyssey," but they may not be as aware of all of the glorious music that continues beyond the opening fanfare."
