At 7 p.m., David Robertson and the SLSO will be arrayed on Art Hill in Forest Park (314-533-2500 or, awaiting your arrival. A full performance, featuring Rimsky-Korsakov’s polonaise from Christmas Eve, Rodgers’ The Sound of Music: A Symphonic Picture and Falla’s “Ritual Fire Dance” from El amor brujo (as well as several other pieces), is scheduled, and you’ll pay nothing for the pleasure -- it’s an absolutely free evening.
