The 2015/2016 season is ending as one of the strongest in recent St. Louis Symphony history.
That's according to a press release sent out yesterday by the SLSO, which says that the Symphony saw increases in both revenue and attendance in the most recent season. Ticket revenue reached as high as $6.87 million, up four percent from last year. The group's "Live at Powell Hall" series saw its highest number of ticket sales since it debuted in 2010, and its classical ticket sales increased for the second year in a row.“The fact that we enjoy a world class orchestra in St. Louis is a testament to the devoted work and commitment of many people," says Barry Beracha, chairman of the St. Louis Symphony board of trustees. "Thanks to our growing audiences and generous donors and sponsors, we just completed one of the most successful years in recent Symphony history.”
