ARKANSAS SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA: 'MIDORI & TCHAIKOVSKY'
8 p.m. Robinson Center Music Hall. $14-$52.

The Arkansas Symphony Orchestra winds down its current season with a performance highlighted by the mononymous Midori, the world-renowned virtuoso violinist who hails from Japan.

I guess she does technically have a last name (it's Goto), but still, if you go by only one name or if you have an awesome-sounding nickname or initials, it can only mean one thing: You are bad to the bone at wrestling or computer programming or classical music or whatever it is.

In a video preview, ASO conductor Philip Mann said the show promises "one of the most popular works ever written for violin, Tchaikovsky's 'Violin Concerto.' " Also on the program is the frothy and festive "Marriage of Figaro Overture" by Mozart, "guaranteed to bring a smile to your face," Mann said. The program returns Sunday at 3 p.m.
