Spirit of St. Louis (Symphony Opening Weekend)

September 16, 2016 TO September 17, 2016 | Powell Symphony Hall in Grand Center | $25 - $82

Opening weekend, celebrate the 90th anniversary of Lindbergh’s historic flight across the Atlantic with the STL Symphony and Chorus. Inspired by the pilot’s account of his solo flight, Weill brings to life that monumental achievement while Boulez’s work evokes the feeling of solitude in flight. The program comes to a spectacular conclusion with Debussy’s La Mer, depicting the beautiful waves and winds of the Atlantic in which the Spirit of St. Louis soared above triumphantly.
