Fall in Love with Stéphane

Remarkable musician. Beloved artistic collaborator.  Warm-hearted communicator.

It was an evening of magical music and special moments – all to welcome our next Music Director, Stéphane Denève. After being greeted by more than 450 people from across the St. Louis community, Stéphane was treated to musical gifts from SLSO musicians and The 442s. Then, Stéphane surprised everyone with a musical gift of his own: an impromptu performance of Debussy’s Clair de Lune.

Enjoy the video created especially for Stéphane to welcome him to St. Louis. And visit the photo gallery to see some of the highlights from a very special evening.

A special thank you to our Fall in Love with Stéphane co-chairs: Janice and Steve Seele, Rachel and Jermal Seward, Ray Simon and Mel Pashea, and Sarah and Dan Wessel.

And thank you to our sponsors. Your generosity helped make this evening possible: St. Louis Aquarium, Ascension, Saint Louis Bank, Centene Charitable Foundation, Rubin Brown, KPMG, Ameren, Touchwood Creative, Jean-Paul and Isabelle Montupet, Steve and Janice Seele, and Dan and Sarah Wessel.

Welcome, Stéphane!
