The Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts is obviously an aesthetically pleasing work of architecture. However, if you have never had the rare pleasure of enjoying the aurally gratifying aspects of its poured concrete design, well, that's on you. Thankfully, the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra
and the Pulitzer (3716 Washington Boulevard; 314-754-1850 or www.pulitzerarts.org
) give you the perfect opportunity to correct this terrible oversight. Under the ever-impressive command of David Robertson, the SLSO director strategically places the musicians throughout the structure for renditions of John Cage's 1981 composition Thirty Pieces for Five Orchestras
and Brett Dean's 2011 piece Sketches for Siegbert
. Minimalist enthusiasts are encouraged to drool as little as possible during the performance. Doors open at 7 p.m., with the performance slated for a half hour after that. Tickets are $10 to $20.
