Friday To-Do: ‘Stars & Stripes & Pops!'

Posted By on Fri, Mar 14, 2008 at 9:25 AM


8 p.m., Robinson Center Music Hall. $16-$66.

Pull out your stars and stripes tie. Don the Uncle Sam top hat. Summon that patriotic spirit. As part of its regular Pops! series, the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra presents what it's calling a “red, white and blue salute to America.” Gen. Wesley Clark hosts the evening and will narrate Aaron Copland's “Lincoln Portrait,” an orchestral work with lots of brass in climactic moments and excerpts of speeches and writings by Lincoln, including the Gettysburg Address. Additionally, the ASO will present a patriotic selection of folk songs, marches and melodies — “America the Beautiful,” “The Stars and Stripes Forever” and more. Clark and the ASO reprise the show at 8 p.m. Saturday, March 15.
