With two games left in the Razorback football season, University of Arkansas Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Jeff Long has been let go effective immediately.

The move comes a week after a lengthy meeting of the university’s Board of Trustees where no action was taken against Long. Chancellor Joseph Steinmetz announced Long’s firing in a press release Wednesday.

Two musical groups are creating something very special: one choral, one orchestral. So, what is new? First, the Parkview Arts and Science Magnet High School choir and the Arkansas Symphony Youth Orchestra face an exciting challenge.

Arts Scene: Harpist Máire Ní Chathasaigh

Nov 5, 2017

The harp is very much part of modern musical programming, and also a vital inspiration to contemporary composers. It has a voice appealing to much music, but there’s no doubt the image of the instrument, the stories and early music, take many of us back in time beyond our childhood to lands of myth and romance.

Arts Scene: Violinist Jennifer Frautschi

Nov 5, 2017

The performing arts this autumn are brimming with plans, led by the 60th anniversary of the Little Rock Central High School Crisis. Time itself is being stretched, with all of the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra’s season openers ahead. The first Masterworks symphony concert is with violinist Jennifer Frautschi. She will also open the River Rhapsodies season. First Masterworks, and a bit of background about the soloist.

Sept. 24 begins the commemoration ceremonies for the 60th anniversary of the Little Rock Central High School Crisis. Celebrities are coming in, and bringing their own contributions. Dr. Henry Louis Gates, Jr., noted for his research on African-American history, is working with a composer creating an opera on the Little Rock Nine.

Molière’s plays, in his lifetime, were always rude and unkind, but his audiences always came back for more. His name, what he said, and how he said it have endured; particularly The Misanthrope, one who hates everyone and everything.

The highly acclaimed Arianna String Quartet opens the Chamber Music Society of Little Rock’s 2017-2018 season. As always, each year the capital city benefits from the high quality of programming the society has established, and the reputation its members have built through the years for their hospitality. The quartet members will work with students at Mills University Studies High School during their visit.

In a previous installment of Arts Scene, the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra’s Music Director/Conductor Philip Mann waxed eloquent with information on the 2017-2018 Masterworks season. Now, he is rhapsodic over the chamber music series, River Rhapsodies. Musicians had more requests for Mann than in any season prior. Mann speaks with Arts Scene’s Ann Nicholson on his vision for the 2017-2018 River Rhapsodies season.

Arts Scene: Kelly And Donna Mulhollan

Nov 5, 2017

This installment of Arts Scene brings new voices and new music, with folk singers Kelly and Donna Mulhollan. The Buffalo River has become a symbol for Arkansas as the only free river in the state which has many rivers. It is also a National River, designated by the National Park Service. National parks nationwide are treasures for the Mulhollans, and we hear about their passion for the Buffalo. The Mulhollans tell their story to Arts Scene’s Ann Nicholson.

The Arkansas Symphony Orchestra’s 2017-2018 season was announced in early spring, but so much of the weeks between then and now has been taken up by the highlights of the season: intimate neighborhood concerts, river rhapsodies, chamber music, and new composers to name a few. But now that July 4 is behind us, we can turn to the largesse to come. Arts Scene’s Ann Nicholson asks Philip Mann, Arkansas Symphony Orchestra’s music director/conductor to take us through the 2017-2018 Masterworks season.
