St. Louis Symphony Extra - Opening Weekend 2011-2012

The time is here!

The St. Louis Symphony Orchestra opens its 2011-2012 season this weekend, and you can be right there with them from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 17.

On select Saturday evenings, St. Louis Public Radio broadcasts the SLSO performance over the air, bringing you a live classical music experience wherever you are.

In its first Saturday performance this season, the symphony begins its exploration into "music and the way it moves people," the theme for this season, with a program consisting entirely of lively Stravinsky works. (See the video below for a preview!)

You can follow along with the broadcast yourself with this version of the same program and translations (both below) 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 SLSO listeners before and after the performance.
