Friday To-Do: 'Home for the Holidays'

'HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS'
8 p.m., Robinson Center Music Hall. $20-$65.

It's a holiday tradition. Every year, for ages, the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra gets Central Arkansas in the spirit with a special-guest-laden seasonal smorgasbord. This year's program contains all the standards: the Overture from the "Nutcracker Suite," "Joy to the World," "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen," "Good King Wenceslaus," "Deck the Halls," "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" and "Let It Snow." Plus, a few more offbeat picks: "Little Bolero Boy" ("The Little Drummer Boy" a la Maurice Ravel), the Main Title and Ice Dance from "Edward Scissorhands" and that klezmer classic "Oy to the World." Presumably, Little Rock's favorite klezmer band, the Meshugga Klezmer Band, will pitch in on that last number.

Other special guests include Shuffles and Ballet II of Ballet Arkansas, David and the Divas, the Two Jewish Guys, the Cathedral School Choristers, The Ted Ludwig Trio, Lawrence Hamilton and singers from Central High, Mount St. Mary's and Oak Grove High School. Santa is a possibility, too. The ASO reprises the concert on Saturday, same time, place and price. And again on Sunday, 3 p.m., same place and price, though students, grades K-12, can go for free if accompanied by a paying adult as part of the Entergy ticket program on Sunday.

    After several years of Arkansas State University in Jonesboro hosting benefit concerts to raise money for the restoration of Johnny Cash's boyhood home, this year the Johnny Cash Heritage Festival debuts in Dyess just outside the Cash homeplace. And of course the Arkansas Times is chartering a bus to be there. The lineup is spectacular: Kris Kristofferson (one of the greatest songwriters of all-time easily), Rosanne Cash, Joanne Cash and Tommy Cash and Buddy Jewel.
