And she only began thinking of making a career as a composer in 2009, after wining the Sinquefield Composition Prize. But she already is making her St. Louis Symphony debut. On Jan. 10 and 11, the symphony will perform Berg's "Ravish and Mayhem."</p><p>Originally written for chamber orchestra, the piece was inspired by a "wild street festival" in "some sort of exotic location, like ancient Egypt," Berg said.</p> Fri, 03 Jan 2014 22:23:20 +0000 Camille Phillips 32749 at http://news.stlpublicradio.org Composer Stephanie Berg On Her St. Louis Symphony Debut
