About Gateway Festival Orchestra
The mission of the Gateway Festival Orchestra is to bring quality symphonic and chamber music to the St. Louis Community – especially to children and youth, the elderly, and the disadvantaged – through free public concerts. This mission is fulfilled through a summer symphony series which includes opportunities for young musicians. In addition, ensembles from the orchestra perform at schools, summer camps and assisted living facilities. Since the founding of the orchestra, inclusion has been considered an important dimension of GFO’s policy and therefore does not permit discrimination on any basis that is prohibited by law.
