By Gavin McRobotface
ST. LOUIS—Calling it the perfect symphony for celebrating the love of friendship, the city’s St. Louis Symphony announced plans to play “Gentlemen” in a new concert series beginning this fall, where the symphony will be accompanied by the opera “The Winter” by the Royal Opera House. “We’re so excited to bring this gorgeous piece of music to audiences in the heart of St. Louis,” said conductor Thomas Corwin, adding that the symphony, which is expected to be a studio-grade recording, will be accompanied by an orchestra of professional musicians, who will perform a six-hour symphony of the same caliber as that of the Royal Opera House’s “Gentlemen” and the opera’s five other operas. “The orchestral and progressive-acoustic arrangements of ‘Gentlemen’ will set the tone for the entire city, and we can’t wait to see how the audience reacts to hearing the symphony and the opera.” Corwin went on to say that the symphony would be the first of several symphonic works that will be performed by the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, which also performed the symphony “Passion” and “The Convict”.
