The Allure of Neon

Todd Sanders is an artist with a flair for neon. Many of his works can be found in Bentonville. On Aug. 23, he'll lead a downtown stroll of his art that begins with a reception at 7 p.m. at Arvest Bank on the Bentonville Square.

As part of Of Note's Symphony Sunday edition, Ohio-based composer Jack Gallagher allowed a rare glimpse into the deeper processes behind writing a major symphony, specifically his Symphony No.2 'Ascendant,' a tremendous work that stretches over an hour in length.

Kazem Abdullah began playing classical music at 10, but his real passion was always how the pieces of an orchestra can contribute to a whole. Now at 38, he has been following his passion for conducting for nearly ten years.

"The variety of the repertoire that one can study and perform is vast and great as a conductor," says Abdullah. "You have close contacts in a wide variety of art forms."
