Never miss a surprise or a concert!
Featuring Chef Adam Thone
Loosen your collar and maybe your belt! It's 2023's first opportunity to chat and chew the fat with good friends, and of course, the APO's world-renowned conductor.
This time, Maestro Steven Byess puts down the baton and picks up the sax! Steven breaks new ground and bread with some of Northwest Arkansas' most ardent arts lovers.
AKA you! And our featured Chef, Adam Thone of The Event Group.
There's only room for 100 guests in the beautiful Thaden School's Great Hall, so we suggest you reserve your space now. The Maestro looks forward to seeing you.
