The Symphony of Northwest Arkansas (SoNA) gets the rockstar treatment in their upcoming 4th of July concert at the Walmart AMP. With more than 5,000 people in attendance, it's definitely the biggest concert they perform each year.
"We don't often have the experience of a jumbotron on either side of us and fantastic lighting and a huge sound system," explains Paul Haas, SoNA's Music Director. "It's a real thrill for us."
The symphony's patriotic performance of "greatest hits" from the likes of John Williams to Aaron Copland begins at 7:30 p.m. The night concludes with a brilliant fireworks show at 9:15. More information is available here.
