St. Louis Symphony Extra - October 22, 2011
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, Oct. 22.
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 is what's in store for you this Saturday (composers are in bold, titles in italics):
RACHMANINOFF The Isle of the Dead
CHOPIN Piano Concerto No. 1
ELGAR Enigma Variations
Vasily Petrenko will conduct the Symphony in their performance, which will also feature pianist Olga Kern.
As an extra bit of fun, see a video of Sarah Hogan, St. Louis Symphony Double Bass, talking about Elgar’s Enigma Variations, (with a little sneak-peek of the rehearsal!) below.
You can follow along with the broadcast yourself with this version of the same program (below video) symphony-goers have in the seats at Powell Hall.
Happy listening at 90.7 FM on air or online here! You can also follow along with our host, Robert Peterson, as he live tweets the broadcasts at @RobertPeterson3. Use the hashtag #slsoLIVE to chat about the broadcast as it's happening and talk with other Symphony broadcast listeners before and after the performance.
