250 Years of St. Louis Music: American Music at its Best! A Music Extravaganza featuring St. Louis Favorites: Denise Thimes, Peter Martin, Kim Massie, Billy Peek, Alarm Will Sound and more! Friday, October 17, 2014 @ 8:00 PM Music has been a vital part of St. Louis for 250 years from the folk music of the French founders and the waves of settlers who came later, to classical music at the highest level, and especially to the citys major contributions to ragtime, blues, jazz, R&B, rock and beyond. Top St. Louis musicians will fill the Sheldon Concert Hall, Ballroom and Louis Spiering Room to celebrate - through riveting performances and projected images - these many genres of American music, from historic roots to the present day. Ragtime, blues and jazz artists are joined by cutting edge contemporary chamber orchestra Alarm Will Sound in the Concert Hall, featuring a world premiere performance of a new commissioned composition by Stefan Freund inspired by St. Louis musical heritage. The music continues in the Ballroom and Spiering Room with more jazz, rock and R&B! Pre-concert festivities begin in the lobby and Sheldon Art Galleries. It's a music celebration not to be missed!
