ARKANSAS SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA: 'REFORMATION'
8 p.m., Robinson Center Music Hall. $14-$48.

The Arkansas Symphony Orchestra returns to Robinson Center Music Hall under the direction of Philip Mann for another installment of its "Masterworks" series, this time with cellist Julie Albers as featured soloist. The orchestra will feature the overture from "The School for Scandal," a classic composition from the 1930s and composer Samuel Barber's first piece written for a full orchestra; Sir Edward Elgar's "Cello Concerto," a reserved, aural threnody written in response to World War I, and Felix Mendelssohn's Symphony No. 5, "Reformation," a piece originally panned after its 1830 debut but rediscovered and celebrated after the composer's death. 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.
