GATEWAY FESTIVAL ORCHESTRA OF ST LOUIS
March 1, 2010
This is an orchestra assembled of area professional musicians performing high quality music for the public. The programs are often based on themes and culture. Making this these programs free to the public provides people with an opportunity to hear symphonic music in a relaxed atmosphere on the campus of Washington University. Parents can bring their young children, whereas the youngest ones are not allowed in a St. Louis Symphony concert. People who might be intimidated by a more formal setting can have a chance to experience repertoire. Concerts are outdoor and people bring lawn chairs or blankets.
By keeping this orchestra funded, musicians are kept employed during a very financially challenging time of year and audiences are presented live music.
