Directions and Parking
Powell Hall is located at 718 North Grand Blvd, St. Louis, MO 63103. Grand Boulevard is accessed off Interstates 64, 44, or 70. I-64 is the closest interstate access. Two parking lots serve the immediate area around Powell Hall:
• The Veterans Administration lot (available concert evenings and weekends only), located north of the hall off Delmar Boulevard, and
• The Grand Center Blue Lot, located along the south side of the hall off of Samuel Shepard.
Free street parking is also available around the Hall. If you have special parking needs, please contact your SLSO contact for assistance.

Please use the Delmar Blvd. Stage Door entrance and sign-in on our visitor sheet. You will be issued a visitor badge, which should be worn while in the building. That's how SLSO staff and ushers know you're approved to be in the hall and filming. The security guard on duty will then connect you with your SLSO contact.

Interview Request Process
For interviews with SLSO musicians or staff, please contact Eric Dundon, Public Relations Manager ( | 314-286-4134). Interviews with guest artists can also be requested and are subject to the decision of the artist's management.

Ticket Request Process
Complimentary press tickets can be requested through Eric Dundon (contact information above). The SLSO reserves the right to grant, limit, or reject requests. Complimentary press tickets are limited to two per person and are seated where there is availability.
