Pianist Orli Shaham asked her parents for piano lessons when she was 5. She's still playing music for preschoolers, as well as adults.

In her "Baby Got Bach" series, Shaham gives kids a chance to play with musical instrument, and listen to live chamber music.

For pianist Lang Lang, Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1 is special.

“Tchaikovsky’s piano concerto is a classical music workhorse — everybody plays it,” Lang Lang said Thursday. It’s also the first piece he played, at age 17, with the Chicago Symphony, and he credits it with making his career.

Lang Lang will play that piece again Saturday at the St. Louis Symphony’s Red Velvet Ball.

Last Saturday night a group of protesters interrupted the St. Louis Symphony at the very end of intermission. The protesters sang an adaptation of the old folk song “Which Side Are You On?” They dubbed the performance “Requiem for Mike Brown” and began their protest shortly before the Symphony began Brahms' German Requiem.

This song wasn’t picked at random.

Saturday night protesters used a new tactic to raise awareness about the shooting death of Ferguson resident Michael Brown. They brought their own music and a chant to the St. Louis Symphony’s performance with a continuation of the ongoing protests in Ferguson.
