Any donations received will go toward the Annual ASO Children's Concert that will be presented in Hot Springs this fall. For planning purposes, we ask that you register for the event if you plan to attend.

Kiril Laskarov is in his 24th season as Concertmaster of the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra. A native of Bulgaria, he received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the State Academy of Music in Sofia and a Master's degree from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale where he studied with Prof. Michael Barta. Laskarov has appeared as a soloist with the Arkansas Symphony, Las Vegas Philharmonic, Conway (AR) Symphony, Southern Illinois Symphony, Abilene (TX) Philharmonic, Symphony Irvine (CA) and Texarkana (TX) Symphony and also as a concertmaster with the Monroe (LA) Symphony and McCall (ID) Festival Orchestra and assistant concertmaster with the Evansville (IN) Philharmonic and Scottsdale (AZ) MusicFest Orchestra. He is scheduled to perform the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto with the Monroe, LA Symphony Orchestra on September 18, 2022; with the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra in Russellville, AR on April 15, 2023; and with the Southern Illinois Festival Orchestra on June 3, 2023.

Carl Anthony is a retired Professor of Piano and Theory and theory program coordinator at the University of Central Arkansas, a position he has held since 1978. That same year, he joined the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra as Principal Keyboardist. He received his bachelor's degree from Bucknell University and earned his master's degree in piano and his doctorate in music theory from the University of Arizona. Always in demand as a chamber musician, Carl performs frequently with resident and guest soloists and ensembles at UCA and with other artists throughout the state. Recent guest appearances have taken him to Yale, New Orleans, Tokyo, Japan, and Vancouver, BC. During the 1999-2000 Arkansas Symphony Orchestra season, he was selected by audience vote to appear as a concerto soloist on the "Audience Choice" Program.
