The Metropolitan Orchestra of Saint Louis has picked up the mantle of being the number one profession/educational orchestra in the city. A major part of its community outreach is the "Sharing a Music Stand"program. It is a mentorship program that places a small select group of young musicians next to seasoned professionals for all rehearsals and concerts for which they receive a stipend.
No other musical organization in the area offers these kind of inclusive programs.

In addition to “Sharing the Music Stand,” an important part of the MOSL mission is it's “Sharing the Podium”program, showcasing emerging conductors of both genders and diverse ethnic backgrounds. Up and coming conductors are given the rare opportunity to conduct a professional orchestra and refine their skills. In our first five seasons we have showcased six guest conductors.
