We will be back at the Julie Rogers Theatre on Sunday, Oct. 19 at 5 p.m. to perform “Scheherazade” by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, which was unfortunately interrupted by a series of unforeseen mechanical circumstances.
In appreciation of our many patrons, corporate supporters and city government, we are excited to be able to complete the interrupted concert and are inviting the public free of charge. This free community concert is made possible by the generosity of long-time corporate sponsor, Entergy Texas, the staff of the Julie Rogers Theatre and the City of Beaumont.
“Our musicians worked diligently to play this epic symphonic work; I’m just delighted that this concert will showcase their talents,” said SOST Executive Director Douglas Fair.
Current season ticket-holders or single concert patrons will be offered tickets to the Oct. 19 concert by mail. The general public is invited to attend by calling the Symphony office at (409) 892-2257 to obtain their tickets. The theater has limited seating so quick action is encouraged.
“On behalf of the board of directors, Maestro Chelsea Tipton, II and our talented musicians, we want to thank Entergy Texas and the City of Beaumont for their belief in the Symphony of Southeast Texas to bring exciting symphonic music to Southeast Texas,” said Fair.
This concert will also kick off a spectacular Symphony week bookended by amazing concerts, as the second concert in the Classics Series, “The British are Coming” is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 25.
