Young Artists – The Gateway Festival Orchestra of St. Louis

Young Artists Program

Every summer young musicians are given the opportunity to perform with our professional orchestra. William Schatzkamer, one of the founders of the orchestra, and the first conductor and music director, started the tradition years ago and it continues today. While there is no formal competition, our music director receives recommendations from area music teachers, visits other competitions and reviews video recordings before selected the young artists who will perform.
