Bring your family “Home for the Holidays” with the Symphony

The Symphony of Southeast Texas kicks off the yuletide season with “Home for the Holidays,” Sunday at 3 p.m. at the Julie Rogers Theatre in Beaumont.

       “Home for the Holidays” will feature popular seasonal songs performed by the orchestra, and includes a holiday carol sing-a-long. “Oh Holy Night,” “Hallelujah Chorus,” Leroy Anderson’s “Christmas Festival” and more will be included in the family-friendly show.

  “This is my favorite time of the year and my favorite concert, as it captures the spirit of the season — family, fellowship, community and great music,” Chelsea Tipton II, Symphony of Southeast Texas music director, said.

  “For the holiday concert, Maestro Tipton always invites great local talent to perform with the orchestra and help spread the holiday cheer,” Melissa Tilley, Symphony of Southeast Texas communications director, said.

    Joining the Symphony of Southeast Texas this year is community leader, singer and martial arts expert Fred Simon, along with the Symphony of Southeast Texas Chorus and the West Brook High School Chorus. Immediately following the concert, guests are invited to a reception in the Julie Rogers Theatre Lobby featuring desserts and a candy bar.

      “We would really love all the support that we can get, it’s going to be an amazing Symphony for everyone to bring their family to during the Christmas holiday.” Tilley said.

Tickets are $25 for adults, and $15 for seniors and students.
