“Live From The Sheldon” premieres with one of St. Louis’ favorite musical groups, The 442s. A free monthly, virtual series spotlighting some of the most creative artists locally and from around the country, “Live From The Sheldon” will stream on both The Sheldon’s and HEC’s Facebook and YouTube pages.
The series will also be available on HEC cable channels: 989 Spectrum and 99 U-verse.
Combining three members of the world-class St. Louis Symphony Orchestra and two of the St. Louis’ finest jazz musicians, The 442s are a genre-defying acoustic quintet named for the modern standard tuning of 442 Hz. Brought together by the innovative and inspired compositions of Adam Maness, who plays piano, guitar, accordion, melodica and glockenspiel in the group, The 442s features Shawn Weil on violin, Michael Casimir on viola, Bjorn Ranheim on cello and Bob DeBoo on bass. Formed in 2012, this unique ensemble blends virtuosic musicianship, group singing and inventive improvisation, all while breaking down barriers between jazz, classical, folk and pop music.
