Little Rock’s Robinson Center Music Hall, home of the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra, will undergo a renovation and be closed between June of 2014 until September of 2016.
The symphony is planning to use the Wally Allen Ballroom at the State House Convention Center as a substitute during the renovation.
Christina Littlejohn, the Executive Director of the Orchestra is inviting the public to an open rehearsal on Friday night, March 29, 7.15 p.m. at the Wally Allen Ballroom in the State House Convention Center.
“It’s completely free. The only thing we’re asking in terms of cost is that we want your opinion. We need to know from the people that experience the rehearsal, how they feel about the acoustics and about the experience," Littlejohn said. "Ideally we want 1,500 people there. The more we can make it just like a concert, the more we’ll be able to tell. The audience and the bodies in the room affect the music”
Some of the music you’ll hear are Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera and John Williams’ Tango and Igor Stravinsky’s The Firebird Suite.
