Under the internationally experienced leadership of conductor Philip Mann, the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra engages audiences with a diverse repertoire of modern, classical, and popular songs. In “Beethoven and Blue Jeans,” the orchestra unleashes its edgy side, gelling their horsehair bows into mohawks before mingling Beethoven masterworks with a rendition of the Latin-style melodies featured in West Side Story. Strings and horns weave spells in Roumain’s Voodoo Violin Concerto no. 1, with the composer himself joining on the electric violin. A “Happy Holidays” concert stocks a playlist full of traditional carols, evoking nostalgic memories of stuffing stockings with mistletoe, roasted chestnuts, and superglue. In “Russian Winter,” internationally renowned pianist Dmitri Alexeev romps across the ivories during Shostakovich’s rambunctious concerto in a concert that celebrates Russian masterworks by popular favorite Tchaikovsky and the youthful Prokofiev.
Kids from kindergarten to 12th grade receive free admission to any Sunday performance with a paying adult.
