Never miss a surprise or a concert!

APYO Concert - A Whole New World: From Disney to Dvořák

The biggest ever Arkansas Philharmonic Youth Orchestra (APYO) took us on a century-long journey through the past.


Three Ensembles and six Chamber groups performed classic and modern pieces. It includes Antonín Dvořák’s "New World" Symphony No. 9 from 1893 voyaging, by way of magic carpet, to selections from Disney’s Aladdin from 1992.


Due to overwhelming demand last Spring, there were two identical concerts to be sure no one missed the chance to see our amazing youth musicians perform!


Check out our concert videos and hear the APYO for yourself! A popular theme to listen for in Dvořák’s iconic masterwork is the recurring opening notes of Three Blind Mice. And in A Whole New World? Watch for the same smile that lit their face the first time your APYO player witnessed this Mouse Kingdom classic.
