What Is Place Without A Variety of Experiences? Especially for Our Youth?

 The Fort Smith Symphony is not only Arkansas’ oldest symphony orchestra, our musical director John Jeter is among the most innovative in our country.

We’re known for our rugged frontier spirit — back in the day when gunfire on Garrison Avenue was nothing unusual, when hangings were a boon to downtown businesses. But with the railroad, Fort Smith grew into this strange dichotomy of Wild West tendencies with a flair for culture, fine arts, and high-brow music.

In 2007, our symphony is leading the way in providing a variety of experiences to a broad audience.

T’is the season for the symphony’s Ear Quake — KFSM TV 5 does a great job of explaining the concept designed to interest students from 40 area schools.

Kudos to the patrons and the leadership at the Fort Smith Symphony.
