The Symphony of Southeast Texas is excited to announce our second POPS concert of the 70th Anniversary season, Up, Up and Away. The wonderful Maestro Chelsea Tipton II, celebrating his 14th year with SOST, leads us in our concert Saturday, March 4, 2023 at 7:30PM at the Julie Rogers Theatre. It is our pleasure to welcome back to Beaumont, Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis Jr., original members of the iconic group The 5th Dimension.
Think back to the music you loved during the 60s and 70s. It probably included songs like Aquarius, Wedding Bell Blues and even Up, Up and Away. Leading the vocals on all those memories and more were our guest artists tonight, Marilyn McCoo and husband Billy Davis Jr., superstars of the Fifth Dimension. As we celebrate 70 years of great music, our guests represent their 70s hits with great orchestrations and arrangements.
Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis, Jr. have enjoyed tremendous success through the years as recording artists, performers, and authors. They have received 7 Grammy Awards and earned 15 gold and 3 platinum records and enjoyed starring roles on television and stage. They have performed to sold-out concerts around the world. They are currently celebrating 50 plus years in the entertainment business with a musical tribute to the hits and productions that have made up their multi-faceted careers.
Leading us Up, Up and Away, toward the next 70 SOST years, we are honored to present Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis Jr. Single tickets are on sale with prices ranging from $36-$78 for this concert.
Our deepest thanks go out to our concert sponsors Mason Construction and Hancock Whitney. 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.
