Lexington Symphony’s season opens with a concert Saturday at 8 p.m. in Cary Hall, 1605 Massachusetts Ave.

The program features Claude Debussy’s "Nocturnes" and Gustav Holst’s "The Planets," performed with a women’s ensemble, the New World Chorale.

"Nocturnes" was inspired by a series of impressionist paintings by James McNeill Whistler and has been described as creating a "gorgeous tapestry of sound." Holst described his most popular work, the orchestral suite "The Planets," as a "series of mood pictures."

Tickets are $20 to $50. For more information, call 781-523-9009 or go to www.lexingtonsymphony.org.
