Christine Brewer will be on hand for her induction ceremony to the St Louis Walk of Fame on April 29 at 11:30am. Her star will be located at 6134 Delmar in The Loop. Christine was named one of the 20 greatest sopranos of all time by BBC Magazine in 2007. She was born in Grand Tower, Illinois and began her singing career in the choruses of the St Louis Symphony and Opera Theater of St Louis. After winning the Metropolitan Opera auditions in 1989, Brewer performed with top symphonies and operas around the world. She probably won’t sing at her induction, but a four-piece ragtime band will perform prior to the ceremony which is free and open to the public.
There are currently over 140 sets of stars and plaques honoring great St Louisans like Tennessee Williams, Chuck Berry, Miles Davis, Ulysses S Grant, Stan Musial, Bob Costas, Jack Buck, Vincent Price, Nelly and John Goodman.
