In fact, the St Louis Symphony has more Grammys than any other musical organization, and every one of them MORE than well earned! Technical perfection combined with heartfelt virtuosity makes for an unbeatable combination for decades! If you miss this one, it's definitely YOUR LOSS!

Begin with the fact that the SLSO is a world class organization and recognize that this is an extraordinarily innovative collection of talent. And then give it a try. Go online for SLSO and, without question, you will find a program that interests you. Once you've found your target, expand your horizons and give it a try. You'll be amazed!

On Father's Day, we took my father to see the Cary Hoffman and the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra. Frank Sinatra is Cary Hoffman's idol, and Cary took us through his own life experiences - experiences that were influenced by Frank Sinatra. The performance was fantastic. My father was thrilled with the entire performance and expressed that he would love to... More

Our entire family came here for a Christmas Performance and we enjoyed every second. It's not normal that teenagers are taken to a symphony with their parents and can genuinely say they enjoyed the entire performance! The theatre itself is also gorgeous!

St. Louis is very fortunate to have such a talented and accessible symphony at its disposal! I haven't been in a while, yet have always enjoyed myself, even though classical isn't what I listen to on my iPod! Powell Symphony Hall is absolutely gorgeous and the acoustics are very good. If you haven't been in a while, or classical isn't... More

One of the great benefits of the SLSO is their willingness to present alternative entertainment options on their audiences. I loved the incredible presentation of the symphony, its chorus and soloist of the music to the movie Gladiator.
