The University of Arkansas Department of Music is welcoming The New York Classical Players to campus at 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 8, in the Faulkner Performing Arts Center. The New York Classical Players are touring Arkansas this week and have been so kind as to give us a performance!

Also included on the concert will be an arrangement of Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 4 in G Major, Op. 58 featuring UAMusic's Dr. Tomoko Kashiwagi.
