Free Community Concerts

Musicians from the St. Louis Symphony have a long tradition of making beautiful live music accessible to everyone in the Greater St. Louis Area with free chamber concerts and events. Whether on our own stage, at a favorite neighborhood venue, a house of worship, college, or senior center, you can find musicians from the STL Symphony in many community performances that are free and open to the public. All community concerts are casual, last about an hour, and all ages are welcome. No tickets or reservations are necessary unless specifically noted.
