Why Opus Ball Matters: The annual proceeds of Opus Ball are projected to be in excess of $475,000. These proceeds are the main funding source for the Arkansas Symphony Youth Orchestras (a training program of four orchestras for children ages 7-18), the ASO Arts Partners (statewide touring/string instruction), and a vital source of underwriting for such production costs as lodging, transportation, lighting, and musician salaries. This event is an opportunity to sustain a vital part of the ASO’s future and ensure lasting music education opportunities for students across Arkansas.
