ARKANSAS SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA: 'AUGUSTIN RETURNS!'
8 p.m. Robinson Center Music Hall. $14-$52.

Classical music fans will no doubt rejoice at the return of the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra, which begins its 2012-2013 season with the return of the much adored violin virtuoso Augustin Hadelich, who performed with the symphony in 2011.

Conductor Philip Mann recently told KTHV's Meredith Mitchell that this season opener has lots of "energetic and vigorous music, and it's the kind of thing we hope sets the tone for the rest of the season."

The program features Strauss's "Don Juan, Op. 20," followed by Ern Dohnányi's Suite in F-sharp Minor, Op. 19, and concludes with Lalo's Symphonie espagnole, Op. 21. Like many of the ASO's programs, there will be a matinee performance at 3 p.m. Sunday.

All season, children can attend the Sunday Masterworks and Pops series free with a paying adult.

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
