Opus Ball XXXIV

It is with great honor and excitement that we personally invite you to join us in continuing to support music education efforts for Arkansas children on October 27, for Opus XXXIV – Mystical. Musical. Masqued. Opus!

This year’s premier event will be held at the Little Rock Marriott Hotel and will feature a variety of performances and entertainment by local musicians as well as members of our very own Arkansas Symphony Youth Orchestra. Be transported to an elegant, fun evening by purchasing a mask at the ball, as all proceeds go directly to our Simmons Bank Education Challenge, or bring your own.

The evening will excite all of your senses. In addition to enjoying an extended cocktail hour including passed hors d’oeuvres and our silent auction powered by BidPal, prepare yourselves for a one-of-a-kind dining experience crafted by Chef Mario Torres with wines donated by Southern Glazer’s Wine and Spirits. Tanarah Lux Floral and Hank’s Event Rentals will create a magical world for you and your friends to enjoy.

Our emcee this year is KTHV’s Dawn Scott who will lead the focus on our Simmons Bank Education Challenge and the brilliant, brief live auction featuring our crown jewel, Sissy’s Log Cabin.

The after dinner party will showcase Hank’s Event Rentals and, back by popular demand, the Rodney Block Band! Dance the night away with us as we celebrate the success of Opus Ball XXXIV. To end your night in style, there are lovely overnight stay packages available at the Marriott Hotel.

Mark your calendars - this year’s Patrons’ Party will be held on Thursday, September 27, 2018 at Chris Olsen’s North Little Rock home, The Edgemont House. This private, palatial garden estate is the perfect locale to host this special event. The Spanish Colonial Revival style and the handpicked décor invoke a sense of wonder and sophistication not to be missed.

Opus Ball XXXIV seating is limited. To ensure your place at this most elegant evening, we invite you to join us as Sponsors or Patrons. To take full advantage of Patron benefits and secure your seats, please reserve your Opus Ball XXXIV table or sponsorship now by filling out the attached reservation form. For any questions that you may have, please contact Tiffany Mattzela at (501) 666-1761, ext. 114 or

Thank you for helping us invest in our community and music for generations. We look forward to seeing you on October 27th at Mystical. Musical. Masqued. Opus!
