Hear Mozart in the Museum Again

-by Molly Rawn and Katy Henriksen

Did you miss the June 24 live broadcast of "Mozart in the Museum?" Fear not, we'll be rebroadcasting the program in its entirety for this week's KUAF Sunday Symphony, 7-9 p.m. July 7.

In addition to the 180 in attendance, thousands of KUAF listeners tuned in as Kyle Kellams and Katy Henriksen hosted the live broadcast on KUAF, and a historic collaboration was made among our three organizations.

"Together we created a world class experience for the audience in the venue and indeed around the region and beyond," says Jason Howell Smith, Artosphere Festival Orchestra general manager. "The future of the arts in Northwest Arkansas has never been brighter thanks to wonderful collaborations like this."

We hope this is just the first of many similar live broadcasts. The June 24 live broadcast included commentary on the works performed, as well as interviews with Corrado Rovaris, Artosphere Festival Orchestra music director; Peter Lane, Walton Arts Center President and CEO; and Sandy Edwards, deputy director of Crystal Bridges.
