Leonard Slatkin Remembers Stan Musial

Columbia Artists Management

St. Louis Symphony Conductor Laureate Leonard Slatkin returned to St. Louis this week to conduct the orchestra he led for 17 years.  Slatkin was Robert Peterson's guest during the intermission of St. Louis Public Radio's live broadcast of the St. Louis Symphony concert on Saturday, January 19.  During the conversation, Slatkin commented on building audience for the St. Louis Symphony to make it as well known as the St. Louis Cardinals.  An avid Cardinals fan, Slatkin concluded his intermission interview with a remembrance of Stan Musial who passed away earlier in the evening.

Mary Edwards is a producer for St. Louis Public Radio's broadcast program, "St. Louis Symphony."
