St.Louis Symphony Orchestra at Art Hill, Forest Park 170909


is the list of songs that the Symphony Orchestra played on Art Hill, on the evening of the 17th.

Here's a view of Art Hill, with the Art Museum in the background, and the crowd collected in front of the tent in which the orchestra is playing:

Behind the tent, as the orchestra plays, the paddleboats on Des Peres creek float in like fireflies, attracted to the music:

Here they are, playing:

Behind the tent, on the Des Peres creek, one can see the rowboats, attracted to the music like moths to the flame:

Some members of the audience, on their colourful groundsheet:

and the want to watch some of them? Midway through the video, don't miss the ones that explode into blue five-pointed star formations!

I wish I could have done a better job of capturing them in photographs:
