7:30 p.m. Statehouse Convention Center. Free.

You've probably heard by now that Robinson Center Music Hall will be undergoing some pretty major renovations throughout next year. In addition to hosting a variety of other programming, Robinson is home to the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra.

Of course, the ASO will need to find another suitable venue for its next season, thus this free test run for the Wally Allen Ballroom at the Statehouse Convention Center. The ASO wants to find out what audiences think of the building and how the symphony sounds in there.

To that end, they've put together a diverse array of music, including Rossini's "Barber of Seville Overture," Stravinsky's "Firebird Suite," and Strauss' "The Blue Danube," among several others. It's free, but you need to RSVP to or call 501-666-1761 ext. 114.

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
