Musical and cinematic storytelling collide in "The Moon," Artosphere Festival Orchestra's finale concert this Saturday, June 29, at Walton Arts Center.

The concert, featuring music from Richard Strauss, John Williams, Debussy and more, pairs live classical music and narration with the George Melies' 1902 silent film “A Trip to the Moon.”

Several local bars and coffee shops in downtown Fayetteville will get a little Artosphere Festival Orchestra pop-up action, thanks to this year's "Off the Grid" this Thursday, June 27.

“It’s not that concert hall, tuxedo formal at all,” AFO violist Carl Larson said. “It’s just a great raw, raw way to listen to music and clink a beer.” 

This annual classical pub crawl, along Dickson and Block, concludes at Smoke and Barrel when AFO conductor Corrado Rovaris joins the musicians to perform, perhaps, an entire movement of a symphony.

After 35 years at the helm of this NPR station, our current manager Rick Stockdell will pass off the baton to Leigh Wood, who will take on the role beginning August 1. 

Stockdell's tenure at KUAF began in 1980 when he was hired as a broadcasting professor and supervisor of  a 10-watt student radio station. By 1985 he founded KUAF as an NPR station. He'll continue his role as a professor at the School of Journalism and Strategic Media after he steps down as station manager.
