Independence Day is already a week gone with Labor Day and election day hard on its heels, but today's guest is wrapping up 2016-2017 and hatching plans for 2017-2018. Of course, it is Philip Mann, Arkansas Symphony Orchestra Director/Conductor, to take us through the Orchestra's 2016-2017 Masterworks Season. First, it's the ASO 5oth anniversary, then Robinson Auditorium opens its newly furbished welcoming doors in November. From the first two concerts in Maumelle to the closing festivities with Beethoven and Blue Jeans, there are celebrations and surprises when, incidentally, this Beethoven Symphony (the 7th) is in the 2nd concert.
