LHS Orchestra Embarks on Two-Year Partnership

Dec. 11, 2019

The Lindbergh High School Orchestra will take part in an exciting overseas collaboration over the next two years, playing alongside the Youth Baroque Orchestra “Die Telemänner,” based in St. Louis’ sister city of Stuttgart, Germany. The LHS orchestra will preview its musical selections on Dec. 12 during a holiday concert, in the Lindbergh Auditorium, 5000 S. Lindbergh Blvd.

The international collaboration is in honor of the 60th anniversary of the St. Louis-Stuttgart Sister Cities program, which fosters mutual understanding through educational, cultural and business exchanges. This May, the German orchestra will travel to St. Louis and perform alongside Lindbergh students. Then, in summer 2021, the LHS Orchestra will travel to Stuttgart to play together. During these two 10-day workshops, students will learn together, rehearse, tour the cities and perform two concerts as one combined international orchestra.

The LHS Orchestra is sponsoring a “Parent Prom” fundraiser to support the two-year endeavor. Parent Prom, a dance/social for Lindbergh parents, will be Feb. 8 at Royale Orleans. Tickets are $25 per person and include appetizers and open bar. The LHS Orchestra will play classy ‘80s dance tunes, with a DJ to follow. More registration information will be coming soon.
