The Henderson State University Opera Workshop will present songs and choruses from Leonard Bernstein’s musical comedy Candide on April 10 at the Woodlands Fine Arts Center in Hot Springs Village. This delightful operetta is based on Voltaire’s satire about a naïve young man’s introduction to the crueler realities of life. These songs will present a tale of nonsense and misadventure that is not to be missed! The performance is at 7:30 pm, and tickets are $10.00. 


We are very proud of our students, alumni, faculty, and our long tradition of excellence! HSU is a special place – we are concerned with the success of every student, and we work very hard to help everyone develop their full potential.

 “The undergraduate education in music that I received from Henderson has changed my life by opening doors for me both educationally and professionally. It prepared me for success by giving me the tools necessary to be a successful music educator. My BME achieved at Henderson afforded me opportunities for success in graduate and post graduate studies as well as professional advancement in addition to allowing my family and me the employment and thus financial security that is so precarious today without such educational opportunities. I am grateful to Henderson State University.”
