And now, the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra presents finale to a season that's been anything but normal. 

One of the most recognizable pieces of the classical music canon, Beethoven's Symphony No. 7, brings a fiery close to the symphony's latest season. 

Also paired with it is Leyendas: An Andean Walkabout. The work by contemporary composer Gabriela Lena Franck conjures images of the high peaks of the Andes Mountains. 

Arts Scene caught up with ASO interim artistic director and associate conductor Geoffrey Robson to talk about the symphony's final show of the season, and what we can expect for next season. 

The show is set for Thursday, May 20 and Friday, May 21, both at 7:30 p.m. A video stream of the performance will become available on May 29.
