When we think of athletes, we think of training, discipline, teamwork, and the pursuit of excellence in performance. But do we also think of professional musicians? Join former St. Louis Cardinal Pitcher John Costello and the Arianna String Quartet on Monday, April 3rd, at 7PM for a discussion exploring connections between professional athletes and professional musicians, and the ways they each endeavor to elevate basic skills to the level of art, how they are challenged by their teammates to excel, and how this process transforms both their physical awareness and their understanding of achievement.
That’s 7PM on Monday April 3rd, in the Community Room at KWMU, 3651 Olive Street in St. Louis.
General Admission: $10
*This event is free to UMSL students, faculty, and staff.
