“One of the principal differences between the work that I have done at other places, either as a guest conductor or as a music director, and that of St. Louis is that I feel the biggest potential we have here is that we play the music with the type of emotional understanding that few other orchestras match.” – David Robertson

The St. Louis Symphony was founded in 1880 and is the second-oldest symphony orchestra in the United States, one of the nation’s great orchestras. A consummate musician, masterful program­mer, and dynamic presence, American maestro David Robertson has established himself as one of today’s most sought-after conductors. A pas­sionate and compelling communicator with an extensive orchestral and operatic repertoire, he has forged close relationships with major orches­tras around the world through his exhilarating music-making and stimulating ideas. In fall 2015, Robertson launches his 11th season as Music Director of the 136-year-old St. Louis Symphony. In January 2014, Robertson assumed the post of Chief Conductor and Artistic Director of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra in Australia. Now a CAMA and Santa Barbara favorite, Augustin Hadelich astonishes audiences with his phenomenal technique and gorgeous tone, Hadelich was awarded the inaugural Warner Music Prize, and just months later won the 2016 Grammy® for “Best Classical Instrumental Solo.” Hadelich plays the “Kiesewetter” Stradivarius violin, crafted in Cremona c.1723.
