Alive and Innovating: Virtually There & Sounds of a Moment with SoNA

The Momentary and the Symphony of Northwest Arkansas (SoNA) collaborate to bring music to you.


If nothing else, 2020 gave all of us reason to explore a virtual experience of the arts. Some arts organizations have taken virtual delivery of their programming to the next level. On november 21, The Momentary and the Symphony of Northwest Arkansas (SoNA) collaborated to present Virtually There: Sounds of a Moment with SoNA from the Momentary’s Fermentation Hall, a state-of-the-art black box theater. A Q&A with three of the featured contemporary composers followed the show. The broadcast was free and streamed via Facebook and sonamusic.org.

Spanning different artistic mediums including dance, theater, and music, the series not only showcases artists’ works but also presents opportunities to engage in conversation with them – all virtually.
