ST. LOUIS—Caleres announced today it is providing a lead sponsorship gift of $15,000 to support the St. Louis Symphony’s 2016/2017 Family Concerts. The Family Concerts are designed to engage and entertain children ages 5 to 12 and are a fun place for families to learn together, listen together and join in the music together.

While this is the first time Caleres is sponsoring the St. Louis Symphony’s Family Concerts, Caleres has a long history of giving back to the community and to the Symphony. Over the years, Caleres has given more than $20 million to the St. Louis community, including partnering with the St. Louis Symphony for over 30 years.
