The ASO is hiring a new Music Director and needs Little Rock’s music lovers to help!

This weekend starts ASO’s first year of guest conductors as they see and hear which ones might be the best fit for ASO, the orchestra and our audience.

As they begin their search, they do want audience involvement. Please let them know what you think of the concert experience. This search will be a little different than last time. They want only the best candidates on their podium, and they want to honor their desire for confidentiality.

This means, some of the conductors audiences will see and hear will be candidates for the Music Director position and some will not. All conductors will bring their unique strengths, gifts and experience to our concert stage. The orchestra will likely sound different with each conductor. Please let them know what you think of the sound of the orchestra with each conductor. They want to know if you liked it and if you would like to see this conductor again.

This is a unique opportunity for all of us. Once the ASO hires a Music Director, that person will craft the sound we hear each concert.

Please take time to visit the street level Box Office before concert, at intermission, or after the concert to pick up a survey.

You can return the survey to the same location or mail it in to P.O. Box 7328, Little Rock, AR 72217.
