The Symphony of Southeast Texas is pleased to announce our first concert of the 67th season. Our performance on September 14, 2019 is all about The Power of 5!
There’s something about fifths in musical literature. So many composers are recognized after writing their fifth symphony or concerto, including Tchaikovsky, Sibelius, Mendelssohn, Mahler, Beethoven and Shostakovich. This concert features two of those titans-Beethoven’s Emperor or fifth piano concerto and Shostakovich’s fifth symphony.
Philippe Bianconi, a perennial favorite of Beaumont audiences, will return to treat our audiences with his majestic playing. Prize winner of the famed Van Cliburn Piano Competition, Bianconi’s treatment of Beethoven’s melodies brings the music alive with color and passion, all through technical wizardry.
Shostakovich’s fifth packs a powerful political statement. Come hear the variety of emotions through the composer’s masterful scoring! A powerful concert to launch a phenomenal season!
Please join us Saturday, September 14, 2019 at 7:30pm at the Julie Rogers Theatre for Classic Series I. The amazing show could not be possible without the support of our Concert Sponsor, Goodyear Beaumont Chemical and our Guest Artist Sponsor, Regina Rogers. 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.
