Lindbergh High Orchestra partners with German orchestra to celebrate 60 years as sister cities


The Lindbergh High School Orchestra will take part in an exciting overseas collaboration over the next two years, playing alongside the Youth Baroque Orchestra ‘Die Telemänner,’ based in St. Louis’ sister city of Stuttgart, Germany. The LHS orchestra will preview its musical selections Dec. 12 during a holiday concert in the Lindbergh Auditorium, 5000 S. Lindbergh Blvd.

The international collaboration honors the 60th anniversary of the St. Louis-Stuttgart Sister Cities program. The German orchestra will travel to St. Louis in May. Then, in summer 2021, the LHS Orchestra will travel to Stuttgart. During these two 10-day workshops, students will learn together, rehearse, tour the cities and perform concerts as a combined international orchestra.
