The St. Louis Civic Orchestra is excited to announce its 73rd Season of LIVE orchestra concerts!

Join us at one or all of our below concerts as we audition for our next permanent Artistic Director. Each regular concert this season (except December 10th) will be prepared and conducted by a different finalist candidate. Each finalist brings tremendous knowledge and experience to the podium.

Our diverse repertoire selection combines old favorites and new pieces the orchestra will perform for the first time.

We are also excited to expand our geographic reach as we explore new performance venues. Get your tickets today and join us on our journey!
