Of Note: SoNA’s Upcoming Season Promises Extravagant Performances of 'Bucket List Pieces'

The Symphony of Northwest Arkansas’ upcoming season promises to be their best yet, honoring Beethoven’s 250th birthday with “bucket list pieces” such as “Carmina Burana” and “Pictures at an Exhibition.”  Paul Hass, SoNA's music director, credits the orchestra’s success to its familial atmosphere.

“It’s so exciting to be a part of something like this that’s constantly growing,” Haas says. “It really is like a family—we all care about each other. This is something special; not every community has this.”

SoNA’s upcoming season will feature multiple collaborations including the SoNA singers for “Carmina Burana” and violinist Jennifer Frautschi for “Beethoven’s Violin Concerto”. SoNA will also perform a premiere of Haas’ new composition, Angelique.
