Quartet in the stacks
The Arkansas Symphony Orchestra’s Quapaw Quartet — Meredith Maddox Hicks and Charlotte Crosmer, violins; Ryan Mooney, viola; and David Gerstein, cello — will perform a program titled “A Little Night Music” for the Central Arkansas Library System’s Butler Center for Arkansas Studies’ “Sounds in the Stacks” series, 6:30 p.m. today at the Sue Cowan Williams Library, 1800 S. Chester St., Little Rock. The program will include the complete Serenade in G major, K.525, “Eine Kleine Nachtmusik,” by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, “interspersed,” says Gerstein, with different takes on what ‘Night Music’ might be,” including “Music of the Night” from Phantom of the Opera by Andrew Lloyd Webber; “Tonight” from West Side Story by Leonard Bernstein; Noites Cariocas by Jacob do Bandolim; and the third movement, “Non troppo lento,” from the String Quartet No. 4 by Bela Bartok. Admission is free. Call (501) 320-5700.
The Movie Tavern, 11300 Bass Pro Parkway, Little Rock, is charging $5 for all movies they screen on Tuesdays henceforth, and will also dispense “complimentary-size popcorn” for free. The policy is chain-wide, in the wake of Milwaukee-based Marcus Theatres completing its acquisition Feb. 1 of the chain, formerly owned by New Orleans-based Southern Theatres, L.L.C. It will now be called “Movie Tavern by Marcus.” The theater phone number is (501) 319-6799; the website: movietavern.com/locations/littlerock.
