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, Nov. 19.
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.
This time around here's what's in store (composers in bold, titles of works in italics):

BRUCKNER Symphony No. 7
David Robertson will conduct the Symphony in their performance, which will also feature Assistant Concertmaster (and St. Louis Symphony Youth Orchestra alum) Erin Schreiber in her Symphony subscription debut on violin.
