Ted Ludwig.

HOLIDAY POPS
8 p.m., Robinson Center Music Hall. $20-$72.

If the holiday concert season has you overwhelmed, this might be the ticket. As is tradition, the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra presents not just a broad selection of seasonal songs you know, but a real-deal variety show, featuring Arkansas talent like Ballet Arkansas, the Arkansas Gospel Mass Choir, the Central Arkansas Children's Choir, the Ted Ludwig Jazz Trio, the Meshugga Klezmer Band, Lawrence Hamilton and mezzo-soprano Diane Kesling. ASO associate conductor Geoffrey Robson conducts. The ASO reprises the program on Saturday; same time, place and price. Also on Saturday, the ASO presents the family-geared “Jingle Bell Little Rock,” a one-hour concert of carols and such with lighting and stage effects to keep the kids rapt. The concert starts at 2 p.m. and runs $20 for adults and $10 for kids 12 and under. Pre-concert, there'll be coloring and crafts and a special appearance by Santa.
