A series of eight live concerts by outstanding Arkansas artists will bring the joyful sounds of music and dance to North Little Rock again this fall when Festival of the Senses, the free performing arts series created in 2011 and sponsored by St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, returns for its tenth season after a pandemic recess.
“We are guardedly optimistic about encouraging live attendance for our performances this fall, knowing our supporters will honor covid-19 protocols regarding masks and social distancing,” says Festival of the Senses founder Nancy Crow. “We are also exploring opportunities for livestreaming and online access and will announce more about this later.”
Celebrating its tenth anniversary, Festival of the Senses is St. Luke’s gift of the arts to the community to entertain, enlighten and inspire. It is the only year-long concert series of its kind in North Little Rock supporting the arts in central Arkansas, showcasing the region’s most distinguished and dedicated musicians and performing artists and their guests.
All Festival of the Senses events are free and open to the public, thanks to the generosity of series sponsors, donors, audience members, and grants from the Arkansas Arts Council (an agency of the Department of Arkansas Heritage) and the National Endowment for the Arts.
St. Luke’s Episcopal Church is located on the edge of Park Hill at 4106 JFK Boulevard. Ongoing information about Festival of the Senses is posted on the church website at www.stlukeepiscopal.org.
