ARKANSAS SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA: 'PICTURES AT AN EXHIBITION'
8 p.m., Robinson Center Music Hall. $14-48.

Conductor Philip Mann will bring his first season with the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra to a close with "Pictures at an Exhibition," a three-piece program culminating with the composition by Russian innovator Modest Mussorgsky that lends its name to the night. While considered his greatest work for piano (and a high benchmark for expert pianists), the suite will get the full orchestral treatment as arranged by Maurice Ravel. The night opens with an early work by Ravel, "Minuet Antique," written when the French romanticist was a ripe 20 years old. Mozart's famous sonata, "Symphony No. 36" (otherwise known as the "Linz Symphony"), also features. The ASO officially closes out its season the following day, Sunday, April 17, with a 3 p.m. matinee.
