Founded in 1880, the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra is recognized internationally as an ensemble of the highest caliber, performing a broad musical repertoire with skill and spirit. After an 18-month international search, the St. Louis Symphony appointed David Robertson as its twelfth, and second American-born, Music Director. Robertson, former Music Director of the Orchestre National de Lyon, began his inaugural season with the St. Louis Symphony in September 2005. Principal Flute of the St. Louis Symphony since 2000, Mark Sparks has firmly established himself as a leading American orchestral flutist and teacher and is acclaimed for his colorful tone and spirited phrasing. Christopher Rouse is one of the United States' most prominent composers of orchestral music. His works have won a Pulitzer Prize and a Grammy® Award, as well as election to the prestigious American Academy of Arts and Letters.
