Arkansas Symphony Orchestra Community Orchestra

Founded in 1998 at the University of Arkansas Little Rock, the Community Orchestra is now a part of the Education/Community outreach arm of the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra.  The orchestra (ASOCO) provides a once-a-week musical experience in a positive and nurturing environment for amateur musicians.  All experience levels are welcome and no auditions are required. The group meets for 2 hours on Thursday evenings to play a wide variety of orchestral music and presents concerts twice a year for family, friends, and the public.
