School is out. Summer is here. Let the fun begin! We've collected a calendar of events for the whole family to enjoy.

Hot Springs Music Festival

The festival brings together over 100 international musicians each June to Hot Springs. For over 20 years, the festival pairs world-class mentor musicians from major orchestras, chamber ensembles and conservatory faculties with pre-professional apprentices, all of whom receive full instructional scholarships. The two groups play “side by side” in orchestral, chamber, solo recital, and choral repertoire. For two weeks, these musicians form a unique community, presenting over 20 concerts and 250 open rehearsals for music lovers from around the globe.

Movies at the Market

Movies At The Market is a free outdoor movie series that will be held every Thursday in June. The movies are screened at sunset in the Farmers Market, 121 Orange Street next to Transportation Plaza. Grease is a musical about teens in love in the 50s. It's California 1959 and greaser Danny Zuko and Australian Sandy Olsson are in love. They spend time at the beach, and when they go back to school, what neither of them knows is that they both now attend Rydell High. Danny's the leader of the T-Birds, a group of black leather jacket-wearing greasers while Sandy hangs with the Pink Ladies, a group of pink-wearing girls led by Rizzo. When they clash at Rydell's first pep rally, Danny isn't the same Danny from the beach. They try to be like each other so they can be together.
