Free performance by ASO Rockefeller Quartet at the Capital Hotel this evening at 5:15

ASO at CHMusicians from the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra will be performing this evening (January 13) in the lobby of the historic Capital Hotel. The music will start at 5:15 pm.

The concert will feature the Rockefeller Quartet.  Members of the quartet will introduce the pieces to be performed.

The Rockefeller Quartet will perform an eclectic program featuring tangos, Scott Joplin Rags, selections from Beethoven and Borodin, and even a popular surprise.

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.

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.
