Stuttgart and St. Louis
Unfortunately, due to COVID, the Stuttgart trips are post-poned. We really hope the students still get to do this in the near future.
The Lindbergh High School Symphony Orchestra has been selected for a two-year collaboration with Die Telemanner, a youth orchestra in Stuttgart, Germany. This project will be in celebration of the 60th Anniversary of the St. Louis- Stuttgart Sister Cities, Inc. partnership, which “fosters mutual understanding through educational, cultural, and business exchanges” to encourage person-to-person interaction.
The exchange will consist of two 10-day workshops, the first of which will take place in May of 2020 in St. Louis, followed by a second in June of 2021 in Stuttgart. The students will stay with host families, rehearse together as one international orchestra, and perform two concerts in each city. The theme for the concerts is “The Four Seasons,” and will feature musical interpretations of each season from composers from a variety of historical and cultural backgrounds. This collaboration will be the 1st international performance for the LHS Orchestra program, and we are honored to be representing the city of St. Louis with our young musicians.
