CONCERTS AND SURPRISES



Upcoming Arkansas Philharmonic Orchestra (APO) concert performances, plus surprise* in-person and virtual events and mash-ups are listed here with regular updates. You can register for the APO e-newsletter, above, to be sure you don't miss any of these appearances, free or otherwise.

*Maybe you're wondering how it can be a ‘surprise' when we're openly advertising it here! Good point … we've always been better at hosting good times than keeping secrets. Still, you might be surprised how much fun your whole family has, experiencing the classics in new ways.
