Kickoff to the Fort Smith Symphony's 90th Season

The Fort Smith Symphony kicks off its 90th anniversary season with a bang with a performance of Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 3 and Rachmaninov's Symphony No. 2, plus a composition debut from Charles Booker. Titled "Borderline," the work is a celebration of the symphony and the city it's called home for ninety years. The symphony welcomes guest pianist Alan Chow back to Arkansas. Although the opening concert is sold out, there are still tickets available for many of the exciting upcoming concerts including a night with the Canadian Brass and culminating in "The Ring without Words," all the orchestral moments from Wagner's Ring Cycle.
