The St. Louis Symphony will perform music from E.T. during its 2015-'16 season.
Time travel, aliens, romance, epic quests -- the Grammy Award-winning St. Louis Symphony is taking it all on during the 2015-2016 season.
The symphony's "Live at Powell Hall" schedule for the upcoming season, released yesterday, draws more from recent pop-culture totems instead of from traditional classical inspirations. SLSO will get other-worldly when it performs music from famed Nintendo video-game series The Legend of Zelda, '80s film staple Back to the Future and legendary film composer John Williams scores such as Star Wars, Harry Potter and many more. The symphony also will bring in guest vocalists for its "Las Vegas Valentine Songbook" and will feature John Elefante of classic-rock group Kansas performing tunes by Aerosmith, Foreigner and more during "A Night of Symphonic Rock."
Launched in 2008, "Live at Powell Hall" is a collection of performances that focuses on music icons, current entertainers and scores from film, television and video games. It's aimed toward welcoming new music fans into the symphony fold.More »
