Each season, Carnegie Hall plays host to some of America's greatest orchestras. Hailing from points coast to coast—Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Houston, Minnesota, New York, Philadelphia, St. Louis, and San Francisco—these orchestras are among the finest in the world.
In this new multiyear series, Carnegie Hall sets out to highlight these organizations—some of them older than the Hall itself—and, by using video, audio, and written material, help further dissolve the barriers between these ensembles and their audiences. The series provides a platform for artists to speak directly to the audience about the experience of being part of the orchestra in its own community, on the road, and at Carnegie Hall.
This season, you will hear from Maestro David Robertson and the musicians and administrators of the St. Louis Symphony. Founded in 1880, the St. Louis Symphony—which performs at the Hall on March 10—is the second-oldest orchestra in the country and is widely considered one of the world's finest.
