Composer, musician and MU graduate Stephanie Berg will achieve a rare distinction when the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra performs her composition, “Ravish and Mayhem” at Powell Hall performances on Jan. 10 and 11. Berg, who is in her 20s, appears to be the youngest composer from St. Louis to have a work played by the SLSO during its subscription series.

For the first time in memorable history, the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra chose to play a recent MU graduate’s work during its 2014 season. The symphony’s focus on new music is giving Stephanie Berg the chance to hear her music come to life in Powell Hall. An MU program made this possible.
