Festival of the Senses

New Festival of the Senses Season to Showcase Music and Murder

Festival of the Senses, the yearly performing arts series presented by St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in North Little Rock, will stage eight new events in its 2018–19 season beginning in September, including a variety of classical and jazz ensembles and an original theatrical production of T. S. Eliot’s Murder in the Cathedral.

A schedule of events appears below. All performances, held in the church at 4106 JFK Boulevard on the edge of Park Hill, are free and open to the public. Following most performances, a reception in the church’s parish hall offers attendees an opportunity to meet and greet the performers. 

Our first-ever theatrical production, Murder in the Cathedral, to be produced and directed by Jason Green, will feature a cast of local actors and performers. All donations received at this performance will go to the Arkansas Repertory Theater as our contribution toward the rejuvenation of this beloved arts organization. 

We look forward to seeing you at our first concert on Tuesday, September 18. Mark your calendar now!
