The St. Louis Symphony Orchestra and the Pulitzer continue their ongoing collaborative concert series aimed at exploring music, art and architecture. The 2017-2018 season will be led by co-artistic directors Peter Henderson, pianist and faculty at Maryville University, and Gemma New, Resident Conductor at the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra and Director of the St. Louis Symphony Youth Orchestra.

The October 4 program in conjunction with the exhibition Blue Black, curated by Glenn Ligon, will be directed by Henderson. The program will feature Steve Reich’s Come Out (1966), a thoroughly influential composition and the inspiration behind Ligon’s neon work, A Small Band, on view in the Main Gallery.
