The 10 a.m. concert is an excellent opportunity for a school field trip. The Orchestra Guild, along with the Little Rock Convention and Visitors Bureau, will pass out supplemental materials with plenty of hands-on activities to enhance the live experience. The event is for 4th through 8th grade students.
The dynamic program includes “Hoedown from Rodeo” by Copland, “”Maple Leaf Rag” by Scott Joplin, the “Grand Canyon Suite V: Cloudburst” by Grofé, and “Symphony No. 9 ‘New World’” by Dvorák. Also features are Sousa’s “Stars and Stripes Forever,” Tyzik’s “Fantasy on American Themes,” Gould’s “Tap Dance Concerto,” and “Piñata” by Lay Rodriguez.
