The SHE Festival returns for its third year in an all virtual format. SHE is presented by the Department of Music in partnership with the University of Arkansas Community Music School.
The festival begins and ends with vignette performances by the Department of Music faculty and students. These mini concerts are featured on the Department of Music YouTube Channel – youtube.com/c/uarkmusic and announced via social media and listed below.
In addition to the vignettes, the festival welcomes five amazing guest artists.
