Welcome to Wonder

A gathering place at heart, The Sheldon invites you to revere and participate in a diverse legacy of live music, arts, events and culture. Our local community is a colorful and eclectic collection of people and ideas. It’s why we’re proud to present a curated roster of our world’s musical and visual icons in St. Louis, and in turn, give St. Louis the world.

We host over 350 events each year. Artists like Dave Brubeck, Diana Krall, José Carreras, Herbie Hancock, Joan Baez, Willie Nelson, Lyle Lovett, B.B. King, Mavis Staples, Wynton Marsalis, Judy Collins and Renée Fleming have all graced our stage. And over 300 exhibits have shown in our galleries since 1998. We also present a wide range of educational programs for schools serving over 30,000 St. Louis-area students each year, and host hundreds of weddings, community events and other celebrations in our historic event spaces.
