Music Record Shop opened in the Grove in August 2014.

Nestled between two of the Grove's biggest venues, Music Record Shop feels hidden, like some sort of secret utopia for new and used vinyl. The tiny space is packed wall to wall with wax and a small but solid stock of cassette tapes. While some stores specialize in old rarities, this shop brings the latest and greatest on a weekly basis. So to promote the newest releases on vinyl, Music Record Shop has partnered with the Demo to bring New Release Happy Hour, a three-hour listening party with discounts, giveaways and drink specials every Tuesday.

Music director David Robertson leads the Grammy-winning St. Louis Symphony.

In the time since the St. Louis Symphony's last win at the Grammy Awards, a child could have been born, learned to drive, voted and had its first legal beer.

That is, until February 8, when the symphony took home a 2015 Grammy for Best Orchestral Performance. SLSO's first Grammy win since 1991 was for its February 2013 performance of John Adams' City Noir, which was released on Nonesuch Records last May.

"If music be the food of love, play on."

William Shakespeare's words from Twelfth Night naturally mean something to us here at RFT Music, and by putting a spotlight on the Bard during the upcoming music season, it appears that the St. Louis Symphony feels the same.

"Music Tells the Story" will be the theme for the 2015-2016 performance season, the symphony announced at a special event on February 3. "Many of the season's selected compositions feature direct ties to great works of literature," SLSO writes in a statement -- including, of course, Shakespeare, whose works will be musically interpreted next February and March.
