Opera Theatre of St. Louis and the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra are among the local arts groups which will each receive $50,000 from the National Endowment for the Arts.

The grants are part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, and intended to preserve jobs threatened by the economic downturn. OTSL will use its money to build, rather than rent, sets for a production next season, thus preserving positions on their production staff.

Here are the St. Louis groups; in Missouri, NEA money also went to Kansas City and Joplin.
