Wrap Up Of The Season
The Symphony of Southeast Texas was pleased to present “Port Arthur Pops”, a symphonic pops concert free of charge.
A special addition to SOST’s 65th Anniversary season, the concert took place on Friday, May 11th 7:30 at Lamar State College-Port Arthur’s Performing Arts Theater.
This free concert was part of the Symphony’s mission to truly reach a greater audience.
Thanks to a generous gift by the Community Concert Association of Southeast Texas to the Wilton and Effie Mae Hebert Foundation, along with further funding from Motiva Corporation, the symphony was pleased to present a one hour program.
The program was filled with favorites of Henry Mancini, Duke Ellington, and John Williams. Maestro Tipton joined in the fun playing Leroy Anderson’s Clarinet Candy!
The concert included patriotic favorites of John Phillip Sousa, and also had Dr. Sam Monroe making his SOST conducting debut!
