The St. Louis Symphony's Young Friends of the Symphony presents Sips and Symphonies on Thursday, April 17, at 7:30 PM. “What is Sips and Symphonies? It is a great way to learn about music in a fun, casual environment. On the third Thursday of each month, we get together at Tavern of Fine Arts to listen to and discuss a piece of music being performed at an upcoming concert at Powell Hall. We will have a different guest moderator each month who will help lead an informal conversation about the music.” A special cocktail is created for each event to accompany the music. This month, symphony chorus director Amy Kaiser will discuss Orff's Carmina Burana. The event takes place at The Tavern of Fine Arts, 313 Belt in the Debaliviere Place neighborhood.
