When the St. Louis Symphony’s 2014-15 season starts tonight, it will mark music director David Robertson’s 10th season. To celebrate, he’s throwing a party.

“I love celebrations with parties,” Robertson said. “The more people you have at a party, the more fun and diverse it becomes.”

This party, however, isn’t a one-night-only affair: It will last the entire season and will spotlight 50 musicians.

Young pianist Conrad Tao was scheduled to make his St. Louis Symphony debut in concerts April 25-27, 2014 led by Conductor Laureate Leonard Slatkin. But when illness forced Markus Groh to cancel his appearances on February 1 and 2, 2013, Tao stepped in as soloist in Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 3 on less than 3 days’ notice and wowed audiences.
