The Chinese classical music and dance company Shen Yun performs at Robinson Center Music Hall tonight. According to the group's website, Shen Yun presents "a collection of short pieces, audiences travel from the Himalayas to tropical lake-filled regions; from the legends of the culture’s creation over 5,000 years ago through to the story of Falun Dafa in China today; from the highest heavens down to the dusty plateaus of the Middle Kingdom." If that sounds like your jam, the show starts at 7 p.m. and tickets are $59-$133.

The Arkansas Symphony Orchestra presents "Ode to Beethoven," including Beethoven's "String Quartet in F Minor, Op. 95 'Serioso'" and other works, Clinton Presidential Center, 7 p.m., $22.

Philander Smith College hosts a Social Justice Short Film Showcase, 6 p.m., $10-$15, free for students.

Ferrous Patella and The Alpha Rays play White Water Tavern, 10 p.m.

Former New Jersey governor and EPA administrator Christine Todd Whitman presents a lecture titled "The Future of Nuclear Energy in America," Clinton School of Public Service, 6 p.m. free.

Kate Gale is Hendrix College's Murphy Visiting Librettist. A poet, novelist and recipient of the Allen Ginsberg Poetry Award, Gale’s libretti include "Inner Circle," based on the novel by T.C. Boyle, and settings of works by the science fiction writers Ursula K. LeGuin and Antonia Butler. She performs at Hendrix, 7:30 p.m., free.
