The Arkansas Symphony Orchestra is holding their first ever “Beethoven Week” in November with plenty of activities to celebrate the works of one the best composers in history while giving back to the community. Their annual “Beer and Brats” street party will be held in front of their new office location (500 Main Street in Downtown Little Rock) on Wednesday, November 5 from 5-8pm.
Attendees can support the Arkansas Foodbank during the much needed holiday season by dropping off a frozen turkey or other bird at the “Beers and Brats” party. And as a thank you, turkey donors will receive a pair of free tickets to any concert from the ASO's 2014-2015 Season.
Furthermore, the Arkansas Foodbank will be collecting turkeys or any other frozen poultry before each of the popular “Beethoven and Blue Jeans” concerts on Saturday, November 8, at 7:30pm and Sunday, November 9, at 3pm. A frozen turkey will help provide a healthy holiday meal to the one in four Arkansans struggling with hunger. Turkey donations at either of the concerts will also be rewarded with two free concert tickets to any concert from ASO’s 2014-2015 season.
The street party, which is open only to those holding tickets to the Symphony’s annual casual concert, will feature free brats, $2 Diamond Bear beer and the sounds of the Episcopal Collegiate School Steel Drum Band.
Tickets for the “Beethoven & Blue Jeans” concert and Street Party are available online at ArkansasSymphony.org and via phone at 501-666-1761 or at the door. Tickets start at $19. For more information on “Beethoven Week”, visit www.ArkansasSymphony.org.
