This clip is from a concert at McKendree College in April of 2010. Our older daughter, LaRae, was in the first violin section in this one but is to the left beyond the camera.

Check out this New York Times article about the St. Louis Symphony Youth Orchestra.

The St. Louis Symphony Youth Orchestra on channel Nine's Networks Living In St. Louis: Our daughters, LaRae and Rachelle, are both in the orchestra clips on this video. LaRae is Assistant Principal 2nd Violinist and Rachelle is in 5th chair of the first violins. This was recorded last year when LaRae was still home, a senior in high school.

This is an invitation to any and all who enjoy beautiful orchestral music and are within driving distance of St. Louis, MO. The tickets are much cheaper than normal symphony orchestra tickets, but the music is wonderful!
