Never miss a surprise or a concert!


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.
Better still, you can guarantee your seat at every concert when you become a Friend of the APO.

*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.



Get ready to swing the night away as we honor the Bartizal family's unwavering support of the APO. The Golden age of the Big Band created phenomenal music and musical artists such as Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, the Andrews Sisters, and many more.

Beer & Hymns began in 2016 as a small gathering on a brewery patio in Bentonville, Arkansas. As interest grew, so did our vision to expand its scope. By summer 2018, Beer & Hymns was a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit funneling money from monthly fundraising events to local charitable organizations. A year later, crowds topping 300 packed into venues, eager to experience the magic of coming together to make our community a more caring and hopeful place.
