We are all following the guidelines of health professionals and practicing physical distancing to prevent the spread of coronavirus. This distancing reminds us how much we miss our community and how important the arts are to our health and wellbeing.

In times like these, we turn to art to lift our spirits, help us process difficult situations, give us a temporary reprieve from our current reality and remind us that we are not alone.

While currently Walton Arts Center cannot welcome the community physically to experience performances, we can help connect you (virtually) so that you can still experience the performing arts.  

Once this intermission is over, we look forward to welcoming all of our community back to your Walton Arts Center for the next act. Until then, please enjoy the following performances and resources!

SoNA

SoNA's Arkansas Fight!

  • The Symphony of Northwest Arkansas shared a "Throwback Thursday" memory via email September 17, 2020 - it's so exciting and fun we wanted to share it!
  • Go Hogs! For this week's 'Throwback Thursday' we look back at our encore performance of Arkansas Fight as a way to wish the Razorbacks good luck on their upcoming first game of the season next week. As you can hear from our spirited performance, we're proud of our UA team, yet our pride stems much deeper than that – we're reminded of our community's strength, resilience, cohesion, and ability to rise beyond difficult times. From all of us at SoNA, we're wishing you safety, health, and perhaps just as importantly, joy. 
  • Join us as we look back on this performance from 2011, conducted by SoNA Music Director Paul Haas, recorded live in Baum Walker Hall at Walton Arts Center in Fayetteville.
