  • The Arkansas Symphony Orchestra will perform Jennifer Higdon's "Concerto for Orchestra" Saturday and Sunday.

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.
