Today's side deal scores you a ticket to the final Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra concert of the season on Sunday, May 9, at 3 p.m. at Powell Hall. The SLSO will be performing Rachmaninoff's Second Concerto. You'll have your choice of seating: Grand Circle for $26 (a $53 value) or Terrace Circle for $21 (a $42 value). This Mother's Day performance lets you give your dear matriarch a gift that sounds better than flowers and is a more enriching way to spend the Sunday afternoon than watching the World's Strongest Mandrill tournament on ESPN12.

Robert Spano, a Whitaker guest artist, conducts the season finale, which features Rachmaninoff 's Piano Concerto no. 2 and Vaughan Williams's Symphony no.1, A Sea Symphony. Accompanying text from Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass and the Saint Louis Symphony Chorus enhance the melodic, enchanting harmonies of Williams's work. Soloist Horacio Gutierrez makes his SLSO debut throughout the weekend on piano.

Reviews

The Los Angeles Times loved it when Robert Spano brought a Rachmaninoff piece to the LA Philharmonic:

  • Spano’s baton here acted like a giant broom industriously sweeping away that clutter. I’ve not heard a more upbeat, brighter-eyed or more bushy-tailed Rachmaninoff Third. It was almost without doubts. The enthusiasm worked up to a point, making even the boring bits pleasing. – Marc Swed, LA Times

Powell Hall

Ornate chandeliers and a high-ceilinged auditorium are just two stunning features of Powell Hall, an opulent, Versailles-inspired concert venue built in 1925. Originally known as the Saint Louis Theatre, Powell Hall was bequeathed its new moniker after the Saint Louis Symphony Society won it during a heated card game with a band of ragtag vaudeville performers. With its marble-accented lobby and sprawling interior, Powell Hall continues to beckon visitors to take in its inimitable sights and classic sounds.
