The onset of Covid-19 restrictions has encouraged greater communications with you over the last few months. It’s been a very challenging time and please know how much we appreciate your loyalty as we navigate some very uncertain times. SOST members are very eager to perform together for you, yet safety for audience and musicians alike require our continued patience. Good things come to those who wait!
The City performance venues continue to be closed for performances, yet we’ve come up with a temporary solution. Thanks to our neighbors at the Beaumont Community Players, we will perform our September 19th concert for no audience, videotaping it for a live stream event. Maestro Tipton will lead members of SOST on the concert of Bach, Grieg and Dvorak. As a season ticket holder, we will send you a link to view the concert to view that evening. It will be approximately an hour’s worth of great music. In addition, we will be sending each household a copy of the new program book in advance. As always, please keep our advertisers in mind as you need goods and services in Southeast Texas.
We are trying valiantly to bring you the great music we enjoy and are in constant communication with the City of Beaumont Events office as to our ability to come back to the stage of the Julie Rogers Theatre. To that end, SOST needs to be flexible so there may be a few good surprises which we’ll announce for substitute performance venues. Rest assured, we’ll keep you well informed and hope you’ll stay with us as we go beyond the challenges of this pandemic.
Please stay well, keep in touch and know that you are a most important part of our performances and success. As always, please consult our webpage or call the office if you have further questions or ideas!
PS. The link to view the video on YouTube will be emailed on Saturday, September 19th around 5pm. The video will be posted at 7:30pm, but you can watch at your convenience. Thank you!
