St. Louis Symphony Orchestra thrills audience at Bedell

Classical music was in the air when the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra performed at the Donald C. Bedell Performance Hall in the River Campus yesterday afternoon.

Musical Conductor Robert Franz led the orchestra through three compositions from the 19th and 20th centuries ... Mendelssohn's A Midsummer Night's Dream Overture, Copland's Appalachian Spring, and Beethoven's Symphony No. 7 in A major.

Many local fans of the symphony were in attendance, such as Elaine Pinar of Perryville.

"It's worth a trip to St. Louis for this. And the conductor, Robert Franz, you can feel that he just lives that music," Pinar said.

The next symphonic performance at Bedell will be the Southeast Missouri Symphony Orchestra on March 1.
