ARKANSAS SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA: 'TRUTH & TRIUMPH'
8 p.m. Robinson Center. $14-$52.

"Truth & Triumph" will no doubt be one of the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra's biggest productions this season. Visiting the ASO will be Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Jennifer Higdon, whose "Concerto for Orchestra" has been hailed as one of the best orchestral compositions in recent memory.

In a video detailing the show, ASO Composer Philip Mann said Higdon's work will show off "the technical virtuosity of every section including the brass, percussion, wind and strings, and all done with the beautiful color palette of a virtuoso composer." In the second half of the show, the symphony performs Shostakovich's 10th Symphony, which "features a large orchestra taken to its limits," Mann said.

The Sunday performance will be at 3 p.m.

    Her dance abilities had clearly diminished, as they naturally would over two decades. I mean, she's 50. And has a newborn. I get it, but it's like they're grasping at recreating 20 year-old Janet instead of focusing on what makes 50 year-old Janet amazing, and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t terribly disappointed.
