ARKANSAS SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA: 'AMERICAN SONGBOOK'
8 p.m. Robinson Center Music Hall. $18-$58.

This weekend, the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra sets its sights on the Great American Songbook. Conductor Philip Mann, in a preview for the show, said audiences will be in for "a glitzy and glamorous evening."

On the bill are favorites by many of the greats: George Gershwin, Duke Ellington, Nat King Cole, Hoagy Carmichael, Rodgers and Hammerstein and more. "We listen to you at the symphony," Mann said, "and you asked for Gershwin, you asked for Hoagy Carmichael, you asked for Irving Berlin, and you get them all and more on this great concert that's full of surprises and sure to entertain."

Sounds like a good time and a chance to remember that these songs are called "standards" for a reason.
