Spoken Word Performance finalists tonight in collaboration between CALS and ASO

Image may contain: textThe Arkansas Symphony Orchestra (ASO) and Central Arkansas Library System (CALS) have announced a collaboration in a spoken word performance event focused on themes of joy, unity and hope. Spoken word writers and artists from our local community submitted their original works on these themes last month, and will now perform their dramatic pieces in a preliminary event at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, January 11, 2019.

Tonight from 7pm to 9pm, adult and youth finalists will perform for a panel of judges and a live audience at the Ron Robinson Theater at Library Square in downtown Little Rock. At this event, performers will be selected to join the ASO on stage at Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9: Ode to Joy, February 23 & 24.

This event is open to the public: invite your friends to share an hour of joy as we hear the work of our local spoken-word artists!
