St. Louis Symphony Extra - March 31, 2012
The St. Louis Symphony continues its 2011-2012 season this weekend, and you can be right there with them from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday, March 31.
On select Saturday evenings, St. Louis Public Radio broadcasts the Symphony's performance over the air, bringing you a live classical music experience wherever you are.
Here's what's in store for you this weekend - a program highlighting the St. Louis Symphony Chorus:
BACH Mass in B minor
The Symphony has this bit of info on the piece: "Composed in the final year of Bach’s life, the monumental Mass in B minor inspires audiences regardless of background as a spiritual masterpiece."
David Robertson will conduct the Symphony in their performance, with director Amy Kaiser leading the St. Louis Symphony Chorus. The following choral artists will be featured:
- Susanna Phillips, soprano
- Kate Lindsey, mezzo-soprano
- Nicholas Phan, tenor
- Stephen Powell, baritone
You can follow along with the broadcast yourself with this version of the same program symphony-goers have in the seats at Powell Hall. (below)
