National Geographic is proud to present SYMPHONY FOR OUR WORLD, an inspiring film concert experience touring internationally, in Beaumont on October 30, 2021.
Symphony for Our World combines stunning National Geographic natural history footage with an original symphony and theme created by Emmy- and BAFTA-nominated Bleeding Fingers Music, the collective co-founded by world-renowned film composer Hans Zimmer. Conducted by Maestro Chelsea Tipton II and performed by your Symphony of Southeast Texas, the show takes audiences on a breathtaking journey through a variety of wondrously wild ecosystems, each accompanied by its own orchestral movement.
Over the course of 90 minutes, Symphony for Our World brings viewers from the depths of the sea, up to the coastlines, onto land, through mountains, and finally into the sky. Through awe-inspiring music and visuals, the show creates a powerful and timely chorus of celebration in honor of the Earth.
Symphony for Our World originally premiered in 2018 on Nat Geo Wild before embarking on a world tour. The production has since been revamped, featuring an updated score and refreshed visuals that further delivers on National Geographic’s signature entertainment with a purpose.
American conductor Chelsea Tipton, II, has won over audiences and critics alike with his vibrant musicality, accessibility, versatility, and art education commitment and is currently in his 13th season with the Symphony of Southeast Texas. This season he will also serve as conductor for a special concert with Pop artist Sting with his hometown orchestra, the Greensboro Symphony Orchestra, in November 2021. In February 2022, Tipton is looking forward to making his opera debut with the Toledo Opera.
Our deepest thanks go out to our show sponsors Edaren Foundation and Downtown Beaumont Cultural Arts District. Sponsors like this help the Symphony of Southeast Texas play a role in the education, entertainment, and cultural enrichment of all residents of Southeast Texas.
