To conclude Dr. Ford's inaugural conducting season, the orchestra will present their final concert on April 27, 2024, at First Presbyterian Church in Kirkwood. The program promises a grand finale with Mendelssohn's Overture to the Hebrides, exceptional concerti performed by the winners of the prestigious Florence Frager Young Artist Competition, and the powerfully majestic Symphony No. 3 "Organ Symphony" by Camille Saint-Saens.
We invite you to join us for these remarkable concerts, where our talented musicians will deliver performances that will captivate both seasoned classical music enthusiasts and newcomers alike.
In our ongoing commitment to making the arts accessible to all, we are delighted to announce that all of our concerts this season will be free. By removing financial barriers, we hope to welcome an even wider audience into our musical family and provide an opportunity for everyone to experience the transformative power of orchestral music. Join us as we celebrate the joy of music and embrace the communal spirit that unites us all.
Mark your calendars and prepare to be enchanted by the extraordinary talents of the St. Louis Civic Orchestra under the inspiring leadership of Dr. Barry Ford. Together, let us embark on a season that resonates with diversity, inclusivity, and the sheer beauty of the human spirit through music. We can't wait to share these magical moments with you.
