Ezekiel Laesch, age 15, is a Sophomore at Lutheran High School North and is starting his first year playing horn in the St. Louis Symphony Youth Orchestra. Zeke grew up in North St. Louis County and lives there with his parents, four siblings, grandma, and his dog Louie. He plays piano, organ, and was introduced to the horn when he was 11.
Zeke enjoys running, playing baseball, and sharing his musical talents. He played in the Alton Youth Symphony for three years, is a member of the St. Louis Academy Brass Band, and also plays at his church.
Zeke is thrilled to be a part of the SLSYO and would like to thank his parents, grandma, Aunt Carolyn, and his horn teacher, Mrs. Carole Lemire for their guidance, encouragement, and support.
