SLSO IN UNISON and the St. Louis Symphony Youth Orchestra teamed up in 2015 to introduce SLSO Peer to Peer. This unique mentoring program pairs musicians of the YO with dedicated Black and Latinx music students from Gateway Music Outreach (GMO), an organization that provides access to quality instrumental music programming for underserved youth in the St. Louis area.

A Glimpse into Peer to Peer

Student pairs meet weekly in person or online. SLSO musicians serve as coaches for each student pair during regular meetings throughout the school year. Student pairs attend SLSO and YO concerts together throughout the season and perform as part of the annual IN UNISON Community Concert held each spring.

Once accepted into Peer to Peer, students are invited to remain in the program until they graduate from high school. Space in this program is limited.

Join us for the culminating recital Sunday, May 11 at the Touhill Performing Arts Center. Check back here for the concert time or follow GMO’s Facebook page for updates here:
