Metropolitan Orchestra of Saint Louis Hosts Concert on January 20 at MRH

- Carl Nielsen: Helios Overture, Opus 17

The Orchestra is composed of working professional musicians, amateur performers, music teachers, and student musicians, who are seeking a venue to perform standard symphonic repertoire at a very high level. As the mission unfolds, it will also be a place to showcase new conductors of both genders and diverse ethnic backgrounds.
The personnel of the orchestra allows both professional and amateur musicians to continue sharpening their skills, while providing unique educational experiences for younger student musicians. Together, the unified ensemble fosters a cooperative learning environment in an artistic atmosphere that brings the joys of music making to the community through accessible and affordable public concerts.
MRH instrumental music students will have the chance to 'audit' rehearsals and will be invited to sit next to professional players of their instruments and gain invaluable insights into the inner workings of a symphony orchestra.
All concerts will take place at the MRH High School Theatre, 7539 Manchester Road, Maplewood, MO 63143. General admission $10, students $5.
