Time: 10:00 a.m. & 1:00 p.m CST

What does it take to be a professional percussionist? Is playing percussion really as much fun as it looks? How do you create a “percussion ensemble?” What does it take in terms of cooperation, teamwork and musical talent? Get your answers to these questions and more as you interact with percussion musicians of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra and Youth Orchestra. Join us live on the Symphony’s home stage at Powell Hall as musicians speak about what it’s like to play in the percussion section, to work both separately and as an ensemble, and to have a career as a musician. Hear the music. Ask your questions. Be part of the ensemble!!
