Donor Spotlight: Emerson

Strengthening communities where we live and work.

As part of giving back to the communities where it operates, Emerson and its charitable trust provide financial support to local organizations and initiatives that enhance quality of life, educate future generations, provide for the health and well-being of residents, and provide for key civic development needs. These endeavors extend to helping the nonprofit community stay strong during the COVID-19 pandemic. Emerson’s philanthropic objectives align closely with the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra’s mission to enrich lives through the power of music.

Through its generous support of the SLSO annual fund and the 2018 Realizing Greatness Campaign, Emerson has helped sustain the SLSO’s commitment to artistic excellence, advancing music education, and enhancing our community connections. We deeply appreciate all that Emerson has done for the SLSO and nonprofits in the St. Louis community.The SLSO is delighted to recognize Emerson's generosity to this institution with a new title for the Powell Hall stage, which we have gratefully named the Emerson Concert Stage.
