The Sheldon is another recipient of our Jeans BeCause program. The Sheldon Memorial opened its doors in 1912 as the home of the Ethical Society of St. Louis and was host to many notable guest speakers and artists. The St. Louis Globe Democrat declared: “Acoustics sound perfect”. It has been called the “The Carnegie Hall of the Midwest”. The Sheldon has been a Daniel & Henry client since 1984 when a California attorney who had a love of chamber music, purchased it and began restoration. Paul Reuter became executive director in 1994 and major renovations to the Concert Hall, Ballroom and adjoining Annex have taken place. Today it is the site of over 350 events each year including great jazz, folk and classical music artists. “The Sheldon Arts Foundation is committed to the preservation and operation of the historic Sheldon Concert Hall and is dedicated to enriching the greater St. Louis region and beyond with a wide range of music, visual arts and educational programs of the highest quality, diversity and educational impact.
