BEETHOVEN AND BLUE JEANS
8 p.m., Robinson Center Music Hall. $14-$48.

In what's become something of a trend throughout the symphonic music world, the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra encourages concertgoers to don blue jeans — or simply casual dress — at its typically buttoned-down "Masterworks" series. On the bill: Beethoven's spirited Seventh Symphony, which Richard Wagner described, in 1849, as "the apotheosis of the dance herself"; Manuel Ponce's Guitar Concert, which includes references to Mexican folk music and will feature multi-Grammy Award-winning soloist Sharon Isbin (above) and Stravinsky's Suite No. 2, which includes a conclusion inspired by a performance Stravinsky watched in a "semi-respectable night club." The ASO reprises the performance on Sunday at 3 p.m.; same place and price, though students, grades K-12, can go for free if accompanied by a paid adult as part of the Entergy ticket program on Sunday.
