Founded in 1880, the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra is the second-oldest orchestra in the country. David Robertson, principal conductor since 2005, was called “the most accomplished American conductor of this generation,” by New York Times music critic Anthony Tommasini.
Robertson will direct the orchestra as it performs excerpts from its performances at Carnegie Hall. Pieces to be performed include Igor Stravinsky’s Danses Concertantes, and Ludwig Amadeus Mozart’s Symphony No. 36, Linz.
Leach Theatre will offer discounted tickets through its “Back Row Club” one hour prior to the event, should tickets remain for the show. The seats in the last row of the theater will be sold for $10 each the night of the performance.
This performance is sponsored in part by public radio station KMST. Additional funding for the Missouri S&T Campus Performing Arts Series is provided by the Missouri S&T Endowment for the Performing Arts, the Missouri Arts Council and the Maxwell C. Weiner Endowment for the Performing Arts.
