Free Orchestra Tickets for AAA Families
Last week, Arkansas Philharmonic Orchestra concertmaster, Dr. Er-Gene Kahng, visited our 6-8th grade students and shared with us the story of Arkansas-native composer, Florence B Price. Price is known for being the first female and first African-American to have a composition performed by a major symphony, the Chicago Symphony, in 1933 at the Chicago World’s Fair. The Arkansas Philharmonic Orchestra will be the world premiere of Price’s Violin Concerto No. 2 featuring Dr. Kahng this Saturday. Performing this recently discovered concerto is exciting and they welcome our participating students to attend this historic event. The APO is offering one (1) student and one (1) adult ticket free of charge ($40 value) to each Arkansas Arts Academy family as tickets last. Additional tickets may be purchased if other family members want to attend. Adults/$35, College/$10, and Students/$5.
