Those who attend the Arkansas Symphony's Acxiom Pops Live! series can expect to hear Broadway singers, jazz musicians or even Santa Claus soloing with the orchestra.

But concertgoers will get a real eye-opener for the 2008-09 season opener tonight and Saturday at Little Rock's Robinson Center Music Hall as an aerialist flies over their heads, two strongmen do balancing acts, a mime does amazing juggling feats and a dancer-contortionist twists herself into unimaginable shapes.

The six cirque artists, veterans of Cirque du Soleil and other cirque programs from throughout the world, are joining the orchestra and new Associate Conductor Geoffrey Robson for "Cirque de la Symphonie," designed to bring the "magic of cirque" to the music hall.

Tickets are $17 to $72 plus service charges and facility fees, with discounts available for groups of 10 or more. Call (501) 666-1761 or visit
