The St Louis Symphony has opened the transfer season with a flush of midfielders.

Jonathan Chu, ex-Boston and Philadelphia, will be the new assistant principal viola (he is married to principal viola, Beth Guterman Chu).

The other two are Xi Zhang, from Hubei Province in China, and Chris Tantillo, a regular with SLSO since 2006.

St Louis now has seven married couple in the orchestra. Is that a record?
