2022/2023 Annual Report

During the 2022/2023 season, your SLSO made music accessible to the community through a variety of live concerts at Powell Hall, new digital projects, and community concerts. Thanks to your generosity, we delivered the power of music to St. Louis and beyond during our 143rd season. We are proud to share with you our 2022/2023 Annual Report.

Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

We envision a world in which every life is enriched through the power of music. This world is created when cultural arts institutions acknowledge their specialties and actively seek opportunities to embrace diverse communities, musical traditions, and artistic styles. The SLSO commits to the significant EDI efforts of dismantling barriers to the human expression, engagement, and enjoyment of music.
