RE. "St. Louis Philharmonic Orchestra". Yes it's different from the Saint
Louis Symphony Orchestra. The Philharmonic has been around since 1860 and is
conducted by Robert Hart Baker -he also conducts the Asheville (NC) Symphony.
It's basically a civic orchestra. I've been playing 2nd clarinet with them
for a couple of years now and I've really enjoyed the range of repertoire
that they do.
Hans Vonk will be the new conductor for the SLSO next season.
We'll miss Leonard Slatkin, but hopefully the change will be good for both
him and the SLSO.
