6:45 p.m., Arlington Hotel Terrace. Free-$125.

As Riverfest winds down, another long-tenured Arkansas festival starts up. Here's betting there won't be huge crossover. The Hot Springs Music Festival, now in its 15th year, is a two-week camp of sorts for 250 international musicians who specialize in orchestral and choral music. The festival pairs mentor musicians from major chamber ensembles, conservatories and orchestras with promising pre-professional apprentices, who receive scholarships and free housing to attend. The two groups play side-by-side throughout the festival, presenting 20 concerts and more than 25 open rehearsals for attendees to see and hear. Performances take place all over Hot Springs — art galleries, churches, the Hot Springs Farmers' Market. Find a full schedule at Most festival days include a free performance; otherwise, concerts run $10 to $15 per event; a $125 festival pass affords access to everything and preferred seating.
