Symphony Preview: Fantasia on a theme of Disney

Written by Chuck Lavazzi

It's toon time this weekend (November 1-3) at the St. Louis Symphony with music and animation from a pair of remarkable Disney films: "Fantasia" and its sequel from 60 years later "Fantasia 2000." The orchestra's new Resident Conductor Steven Jarvi is on the podium while Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and a host of other cartoon critters cavort on the screen.

Growing up is hard to do. It is rare that the transition from youth to young adult occurs without some pain. It is, in fact, all too common that the pain is almost unbearable. The Washington University Performing Arts Department…
Like you, I think I read Henry James' "The Turn of the Screw" in Freshman English.  This so-called "ghost story" is rather rough going for a Freshman, what with James' long, formal, rambling, ornately qualified, vaguely Germanic sentences.  But I…

The voices, rumbles and roars are part of "Audible Interruptions," a series of site-specific sound installations that opened in early September and will run, in three parts, until August 2014.

Symphony Preview: Story time

Written by Chuck Lavazzi

Written by Chuck Lavazzi

This is another “twofer” week when it comes to St. Louis Symphony concerts.  In addition to the regular series as Powell Hall on Friday and Saturday there’s a Pulitzer Series event on Wednesday at the Pulitzer Center for the Arts just west of Powell Hall.  If you’ve never been to the Pulitzer Series, here’s a heads-up.

Fast and furious suits ‘The Comedy of Errors’
