Never miss a surprise or a concert!

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.

Together (again) for the Holidays


Hear it live, at last! Please join us, as the APO once again supports the University of Arkansas Inspirational Chorale's annual event. It's their joyous holiday celebration.

Beer and Hymns


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.
