IN UNISON® Program
The St. Louis Symphony IN UNISON® program began in 1992 through the leadership
and generosity of the Monsanto Fund. The St. Louis Symphony IN UNISON® program, which began with
five churches, quickly established itself as the model for the
Symphony's community programs, and now Orchestra musicians
perform to 20,000 members from more than thirty churches in the
Metro-St. Louis African-American community. The St. Louis Symphony IN UNISON® program was
designed to provide music-related resources to area churches
while increasing access to Powell Hall. Orchestra
musicians visit member churches offering music during services,
special event concerts, and educational events. In addition, the St. Louis Symphony IN UNISON® program church members are eligible for discounted SLSO concerts,
tuition discounts to area music camps, music scholarships to the
University of Missouri-St. Louis and other benefits. Partnering
churches are also invited to special events at Powell Hall.
An exciting development of this program has been the
St. Louis Symphony IN UNISON® Chorus.
Created in 1994 to further involve the St. Louis Symphony IN UNISON® program church members, the
Chorus now comprises 130 members from throughout the community.
The Chorus performs as part of the Orchestra's season in the
annual Black History Month Celebration, as well as in Gospel
Christmas concerts, and community concerts in various locations
around the area.
