35 Years of Opus

Since its founding in 1984, the Symphony’s Opus Ball has been steered by dozens of Little Rock’s most illustrious leaders and philanthropists. Together they have raised more than $10 million for children’s music education. This year we look back and celebrate those who’ve made Opus Ball the most elegant fundraising gala in central Arkansas. Please join us for Rhapsody in Blue, an exceptional evening recognizing these great patrons of the arts.
