The Little Rock Culture Vulture debuted on Saturday, October 1, 2011, to kick off Arts & Humanities Month.
The first feature was on the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra, which was kicking off its 2011-2012 season that evening. The program consisted of Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 4 in A, Op. 90, Rossini’s, Overture to The Italian Girl in Algiers, Puccini’s Chrysanthemums and Respighi’s Pines of Rome. In addition to the orchestra musicians, there was an organ on stage for this concert.
Since then, there have been 10,107 persons/places/things “tagged” in the blog. This is the 3,773rd entry. (The symmetry to the number is purely coincidental–or is it?) It has been viewed over 288,600 times, and over 400 readers have made comments. It is apparently also a reference on Wikipedia.
The most popular pieces have been about Little Rock history and about people in Little Rock.
