The St. Louis Symphony Orchestra's 144th kicked off the week of September 18. And although the main concerts took place at Forest Park and at Stifel Theatre, the season actually began with a treasured tradition: a free community concert at Washington University in St. Louis.
This yearly collaboration featured student musicians followed by the trombone section of the SLSO: Jonathan Randazzo (Principal), Amanda Stewart (Associate Principal), Jonathan Reycraft, and Chris Bassett.
The quartet performed a variety of music, from George Gershwin's Summertime and Scott Joplin's The Entertainer, to music by J.S. Bach and Andrea Gabrieli in front of a crowd that included students and residents of the area.
