I left the final River Rhapsody Chamber Music Series performance of this season excited by the new people that I had the opportunity to meet at the SHARP Event, and excited by the vast array of music that I had the opportunity to enjoy. The evening began with a SHARP Event in which members were invited to enjoy a glass of wine while getting to know one another. This experience was extra special for me because my sister was visiting from out of town. I brought her to the event as my guest. She was impressed both by the SHARP group and the symphony performance. She could not believe

Music hasn't always been my forte. Never would I even touch my viola when I first started playing it. It wasn't until my 6th grade year that a light in me was turned on and I just started growing musically.

This week the Arkansas Symphony performed Meditation on the Old Bohemian Chorale "Saint Wenceslas” by Czech composer Josef Suk. After hearing this important work one is left to wonder…
Who was Josef Suk?
"I do not bow to anyone, except to my own conscience and to our noble Lady Music… and yet at the same time I know that thereby I serve my country, and praise the great people from the period of our wakening who taught us to love our country."

On March 10th at 7:00 pm, the ASO will be presenting Something “Old” at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in North Little Rock. This concert will feature the music of Bach, Respighi, and Vivaldi.
I consider myself a pretty knowledgeable classical music fan. I’m generally familiar with the works of Bach. I own a recording of Vivaldi’s “Four Seasons.” But, Respighi? I’d never heard of him until I read the program for the event.
