Education Challenge

The ASO is also the only orchestra in Arkansas with full-time musicians-educators who travel extensively across the state to provide interactive music education programs in schools. ASO's Bucket Band uses 5-gallon buckets and inexpensive drumsticks, allowing students from all demographics to experience rhythm and music while building life skills for the future. These programs have also shifted to a virtual platform to allow children to receive these quality music programs without disruption despite the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Funds raised through the Opus Ball Education Challenge are crucial for the ongoing growth and success of ASO's education programs. Never has that been so crucial as this year. Not only are all of ASO's education offerings still operating full force, but they have all been reimagined this year so we can continue to serve Arkansas children during this pandemic. Your pledge to the Opus Education Challenge will ensure these programs can continue to serve children this year and beyond.
