Musicians from the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra will be performing this evening in the lobby of the historic Capital Hotel.
In 2011, the ASO started these free concerts in the lobby of the Capital Hotel. The marble and tile of this historic lobby provide a wonderful acoustic backdrop for the musicians.
The concert will feature short, accessible pieces along with commentary from the musicians.
Unlike concerts in music halls, guests here are encouraged to bring drinks to their seats or to stand and move around while the musicians are playing. It is a relaxed, informal atmosphere where the audience and musicians alike are able to interact with each other.
This concert is part of the ASO’s ongoing efforts to play throughout the community under the leadership of Music Director Philip Mann and Executive Director Christina Littlejohn. In addition to the Capital Hotel concerts, they offer occasional free concerts at UAMS and have recently started the INC (Intimate Neighborhood Concerts) subscription series.
