The Arkansas Philharmonic Orchestra (APO) is ultimately about two things: 1) presenting wonderful music interestingly, often partnering with other Arkansas arts groups, and 2) cultivating local young musical talent. Frankly, if we do either one right, we're halfway to accomplishing the other. All the recordings here support those goals.
