Pluto is no longer a planet? So what about music written for the planet Pluto? Performance Today gets a quick update on astronomical news from NPR science reporter David Kestenbaum, and then plays music for a planet not likely to be voted out of the solar system anytime soon: Jupiter, from "The Planets," by Gustav Holst. Jerry Junkin leads the Dallas Wind Symphony, from a concert at Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas.
