The SOST orchestra, under the direction of Maestro Chelsea Tipton, will perform an hour-long program full of all your favorite holiday music. Guest artists include Lance Orta, Tenor and Jimmy Simmons, Tenor Saxophone.
The holiday concert will also include several local choirs. Under the direction of James Han, the SOST Chorus will be in attendance, as well as the Calder Baptist Choir, directed by W. Chris Richter.

Cookies and hot chocolate will be served in the lobby immediately following the show.

The Symphony of Southeast Texas, embarking on its 66th season, is a regional, professional orchestra based in Beaumont, Texas. The Symphony performs a number of subscription concerts, educational programs and other concerts throughout Southeast Texas each year.
