what is it:

Join us at the “Symphony Lounge” (Collection Room) at the Bakery District for one night only as we celebrate 100 years of Fort Smith Symphony with music, wine, and dinner in a disco lounge setting. 

Immediately following our Season Opening Concert on September 9, 2023, visit the Symphony Lounge at the Bakery District to ring in a new century of the Fort Smith Symphony. Decked out with mirror balls, club lounge furniture, and live music all night, we will celebrate 100 years with the community that makes our work possible. Join us for a cocktail lounge evening like you’ve never experienced before. 

Please note: $75 event tickets are separate from concert tickets. Please purchase both to experience the full evening. 





Entertainment includes selections from our in-school education programs: 

  • Kool Cats & the History of Jazz
