ARKANSAS CHAMBER SINGERS
7:30 p.m., St. Mark's Episcopal Church. $10-$15.

On the eve of its 30th anniversary, the Arkansas Chamber Singers unveil a special commissioned piece. From renowned composer Stephen Paulus, who The New Yorker has called “... a bright, fluent inventor with a ready lyric gift,” comes the world premiere of “Christmas Dances,” a work written for harp, flute and chorus. The Chamber Singers are billing this holiday-themed concert “Tomorrow Will Be My Dancing Day,” and they'll sing that famous carol as well as selections from Herbert Howells and Tchaikovsky's “Nutcracker Suite.” Dancers from the Arkansas Festival Ballet, harpist Elizabeth Chardonnet and flutist Carolyn Brown accompany the singers. There's an encore performance, same place, same time, on Sunday.
