Never miss a surprise or a concert!

NORTHWEST ARKANSAS, SET TO MUSIC

Can you hear it? The Arkansas Philharmonic Orchestra (APO) reflects the people, culture and physical landscape of Northwest Arkansas in melody and rhythm. We're here to inspire diverse Arkansas arts audiences to enjoy orchestral music in surprising new ways and to cultivate young minds. 

About

The Soldier's Tale

Part concert, part theatrical performance, The Soldier's Tale is your classic devil-went-down-to-Georgia/Ukraine story. Seven of APO's finest musicians undertake one of Stravinsky's most difficult works. Meanwhile, dramatic readings from our friends at Trike Theatre set the shocking scene.

Created just in time to be shut down due to the Spanish Flue in 1918, The Soldier's Tale sounds as jagged and feels as unsettling today as it did then.

SHHH! DON'T TELL THEM CLASSICAL MUSIC BUILDS BETTER SCHOLARS.


The benefits of listening to and playing music are proven, improving concentration, fostering creativity and bolstering other brain functions. But we prefer to tell our charges in school residencies and the Arkansas Philharmonic Youth Orchestra (APYO) that listening to and learning music is fun and builds friendships.
