Your Support Needed Now More than Ever

A donation to ASO puts instruments in the hands of children, makes live symphonic music accessible to all Arkansans, and makes it possible for world-class musicians to call Arkansas home. 

Every dollar counts, and each donation helps ensure a sustainable, thriving future for ASO.

ASO plans to honor the financial commitment made to the musicians as the musicians have always been there for the ASO and the community and now we want to be there for them.

From Executive Assistant to Director of Education and Outreach

By Barbara Burroughs -  Director of Education and Outreach

As a part of the ASO staff for over 16 years, I’ve seen many changes in the orchestra, staff and patrons over the years. 

Preparing for Concerts

By Christian Eddings - Development Coordinator

Although this is my first year, I have gained a lot of experience preparing for concerts. As an artist, I have only known one side of being prepared for a concert, which is making sure my performance mix is perfect, rehearsing, envisioning myself on the stage, but being the one who is helping to set the stage for other artists is another experience in itself.

Working Toward the New Season

The 2014-2015 season is over, and now I don’t have to do any more work until September, right?

Emily Farris - Special Events Coordinator

As the Special Events Coordinator for Arkansas Symphony Orchestra, I have come to love many aspects of this job. Being new to the staff this year has been an eye opening experience. Seeing the effort and dedication amongst the ASO staff and musicians is what motivates me every day.

Getting Ready for Opening Night

By Meagan Adams – Director of Finance

Here it is in May, and our 2014/15 season just ended. Preparations have been underway for a while for next season, and my work for opening night is just about over. My name is Meagan Adams, and I’m the Finance Director for the ASO. Yes, I’m one of those “boring accountants” but at least I get to work around fun people!
