Fayetteville’s professional symphony orchestra will be back in action again next month with a new show that blends contemporary music with classic works.

After three consecutive sell outs to close out the year last year, Symphony of Northwest Arkansas (SoNA) will be back at Walton Arts Center on Saturday, March 11 to perform some new works that will be included on an album they will release soon.

The show, called New Canons, will feature performances of Trevor New’s Cohere I, Paul Haas’ In saecula saeculorum, and Symphony No. 3 in F Major by Johannes Brahms.

“Through this concert, SoNA demonstrates that the musical canon, a collection of works that is considered to be of the highest quality and widely beloved, is not static but is alive and vibrant,” said SoNA Executive Director D. Riley Nicholson in a press release issued this week. “SoNA contributes to the life of our collective musical canon by highlighting new voices like Trevor New and Paul Haas, demonstrating how their music coexists and converses with time-honored composers like Brahms.”

Tickets to the performance range from $36-$60, with mini-subscriptions to the remaining shows this seasons also available. To purchase tickets or for more info, visit
