Beginning its 52nd season in 2017-2018, the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra is one of Arkansas’ most dynamic performing organizations. Under the direction of Music Director Philip Mann, the yuletide concert will feature a festive mix of traditional classics as well as classical, religious and secular selections. Hailed by the BBC as a “Talent to watch out for, who conveys a mature command of his forces,” American conductor Philip Mann is gaining a worldwide reputation as an “expressively graceful yet passionate” artist. In his seventh season as Music Director, the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra has seen audience and artistic growth, new energy, and financial health under his tenure.

In addition, the orchestra performs a Chamber Series, River Rhapsodies, intimate neighborhood concerts, plus a busy schedule of statewide touring, chamber music, and educational performances in numerous venues and collaborations with Ballet Arkansas and the Arkansas Repertory Theatre. Comprised of the state’s most sought after professional musicians, the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra performs for more than 165,000 Arkansans each year, consistently plays to high critical praise, and through numerous education and outreach programs, over 40,000 children experience the magic of music each year.
