Good sport: Saint Louis Symphony head Marie-Hélène Bernard to toss the first pitch at Cardinals game

Posted on: August 17, 2015

“Marie-Hélène Bernard, the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra’s new president and CEO, will throw out the first pitch at the Cardinals-Nationals game on August 31,” writes Sarah Bryan Miller in Friday’s (8/14) St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “She’s now in the process of getting her arm in shape. As SLSO external affairs and publications manager Eddie Silva notes in a blog post, Bernard is originally from Montreal, and is well aware that the Nationals were once the Expos. A viola da gamba player, she also knows all about the importance of practice. SLSO vice president for external affairs Adam Crane, a dedicated member of Cardinal Nation, is serving as her coach in the weeks leading up to her Busch Stadium debut. It’s a long throw to home plate, but Bernard is looking good. Watch her work with Crane here: http://www.stlsymphony.org/blog/index.php/2015/08/practice-throws/.”
