Rock Out

Good to be back. A few things to come in the weeks ahead: Postcard Thursday returns, with a few St. Louis Symphony musicians sending in a photo or two of where they are and a few words about what they’re up to during summer break; I’m going to spend some time on the word “classical,” a word that is used to describe a lot of music, inadequately; Top 5 musician picks–members of the orchestra have shared with me their most anticipated concerts throughout the upcoming 16/17 season. I’ll be sharing the hot picks soon. For example, here is what second violinist Andrea Jarrett had to say about Bartok’s Concerto for Orchestra, a work that features nearly every instrument:

“This is just one of those pieces that makes you feel like a total rock star, and also allows you to say ‘Look how good my colleagues are at their instruments!’ I can’t wait to hear this orchestra rock out.”
