In loving memory, the musicians of the STL Symphony have established the Drew Thompson Tribute Fund for the St. Louis Symphony Youth Orchestra. Drew, a native of Webster Groves, played in the Youth Orchestra for four years, and in 2012 became the seventh Youth Orchestra alumnus to become a member of the STL Symphony.
