  • Wu Man performs at the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra's "Beethoven & Blue Jeans" concert this weekend.

8 p.m. Robinson Center Music Hall. $14-$52.

The third installment of the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra's Masterworks series is the ever-popular "Beethoven & Blue Jeans" concert, in which symphony lovers may eschew their normal, formal attire for something a little more casual, say, a T-shirt and those perfectly broken-in vintage 501s, from back before Levis cheaped out on us.

And hey, what goes better with comfy duds than delicious sausages washed down with frosty, golden beer? Well boss, the ASO is also reprising the popular Beer & Brats Street Party, in which concert ticketholders may enjoy brats and $2 Diamond Bear beers prior to taking in the music.

Speaking of which, here's what's in store: Beethoven's first theatre score, "The Creatures of Prometheus, Op. 43: Overture." Next up is Grammy and Oscar winner Tan Dun's "Concerto for String Orchestra and Pipa," featuring pipa prodigy Wu Man. The second half of the show boasts a crowd favorite for sure, with Rimsky-Korsakov's Arabian Nights-inspired "Scheherazade."

The concert (and the Beer & Brats Street Party) is reprised Sunday at 3 p.m.
