SoNA Presents: Cosmopolitan Strings


SoNA presents string quartet music representing our cosmopolitan musicians and diverse community. Our symphony musicians, like the broader Northwest Arkansas community, includes many artists who have near or distant roots from all over the world. In just one hour, we’ll take you on a trip around the globe, and you can get to know our musicians and their unique heritages and backgrounds. This fantastically varied program will include string quartets by Philip Glass, Scott Joplin, Aka Tonbo, Astor Piazzolla, Rimsky Korsakov, and many other composers from around the world. This program is led by SoNA violinist Miho Oda Sakon and also features violinist Andrew Chu, violist Jesse Collett, and cellist Kari Caldwell.

This event is being held at Cottage Circle at Mount Sequoyah. There will be safely distanced circles marked on the ground in which guests may set up their own chairs or blankets to enjoy the concert – you may want to bring bug spray, too! Each circle can host up to 4 people (circles are approximately 10 feet in diameter). Masks will be required when not in your designated circle.
