Last week I posted photos of the activities going on outside of the concert hall for the On Stage at Powell tango night, featuring Cortango Orquesta. This week, thanks to photographer Joe Schmidt, here are pictures of the show.

Cat Fancy

As you may have seen in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, kittens kaboodled around Powell Hall on a recent afternoon. Here is the link to Sarah Bryan Miller’s story: click.

Suffice to say a photo op for the P-D is a photo op for the St. Louis Symphony blog. The to-be-adopted kittens are named for Russian composers, hence the Symphony angle, plus flutist Jennifer Nitchman is on the board of Tenth Life Cat Rescue, which works mightily to make a better world for kitties, plus you can’t keep St. Louis Symphony musicians away from a cat photo shoot.
