MADCO, ASQ Voted Among Best in St. LouisJuly 29, 2014
UMSL Fine Arts and Communication and the Touhill Performing Arts Center were again well represented in the Go! List, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch critics’ and readers’ picks for the best in St. Louis. Following are the exceptional artists on campus making an impact on the entire St. Louis area community:
The Arianna String Quartet was named critic and readers’ choice for Best Chamber Music Group. “We’re fortunate that the University of Missouri–St. Louis has a set of Artists in Residence, and even more fortunate that those artists comprise the Arianna String Quartet. They offer fine, accessible playing and great discussions of the music that illuminate the intentions of, and influences on, the composers,” said Sarah Bryan Miller, classical music critic.
MADCO, named 2014 readers’ choice for Best Local Dance Company, was the 2013 critic’s choice.
Readers and critics chose the Spring to Dance Festival as the Best Dance Festival/Series in 2014. According to dance critic Calvin Wilson, the most recent edition was “as impressive as ever… providing one of the better entertainment options for the Memorial Day weekend.”
Congratulations again to all!
