ST. LOUIS, Mo. – The St. Louis Symphony Orchestra (SLSO) and the Nine Network of Public Media announced their 2019 schedule for Night at the Symphony, a monthly broadcast of an SLSO concert recorded at the historic Powell Hall.
This season marks the fifth year of the collaborative production. Night at the Symphony is the only regular television program of its kind produced in partnership between local public media station and an orchestra.
The next episode, featuring the St. Louis Symphony Youth Orchestra led by Resident Conductor Gemma New, airs this Sunday, February 3, at 5:00 pm.
The SLSO and Nine Network collaborated regularly on stories and special productions over the past 10+ years.
