The internationally renowned St. Louis Symphony will perform at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 29, in Leach Theatre of Castleman Hall, 10th and Main streets in Rolla. The concert is part of Missouri University of Science and Technology’s 2012-13 Campus Performing Arts Series.
Founded in 1880, the St. Louis Symphony is the second-oldest orchestra in the country and widely considered to be one of the world’s finest. The St. Louis Symphony strives to make classical music accessible to everyone through a series of innovative and nationally recognized local outreach programs.
The performance will feature Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro Overture, Haydn’s Symphony No. 104 in D major and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 in C minor. The orchestra will be conducted by Daniel Stewart.
Stewart, recipient of the 2010 Aspen Music Festival’s James Conlon Conducting Prize, was appointed conductor with the Metropolitan Opera’s Lindemann Young Artist Development Program in 2012. He has served as cover conductor with the Philadelphia Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Atlanta Symphony and the New World Symphony.
