Saturday and Sunday To-Do: 'Opening Night and Tchaikovsky'

‘OPENING NIGHT AND TCHAIKOVSKY'
8 p.m., Robinson Center Music Hall.

Saturday marks the beginning of the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra's conductor candidate performances. At each of its five Masterworks concerts, a candidate will take the reins in a try-out of sorts. Arthur Post, now serving as music director of the San Juan Symphony, goes first (read a Q&A with Post on page 28). The Tchaikovsky in the program's title is the composer's famed violin concerto, which will feature acclaimed young violinist Karen Gomyo. To augment the already-selected concerto, which Post says gives him “once-upon-a-time feel,” he chose works by Carl Nielsen (“A Saga Dream”) and Jean Sibelius (“Symphony No. 2”), Scandinavian composers whose work evokes storytelling, Post says. With Post conducting again, the ASO reprises its program on Sunday at 3 p.m., same place, same price.
