Symphony Fantastique at Julie Rogers Theatre March 11

Following a sold-out concert with Tracy Byrd, the Symphony of Southeast Texas (SOST) continues its “Symphony Fantastique” season by going back to the classics and performing great works from Johann Strauss, Johannes Brahms and Robert Schumann. The SOST Chorus also joins in for a traditional choral concert Saturday, March 11, at 7:30 p.m. at the Julie Rogers Theatre.

Going back to their roots, this choral concert is one that interweaves many voices to produce harmony and a lyrical style that goes beyond the straight symphonic style. The orchestra is enhanced by the chorus of the SOST to add to the sonic beauty.

Guest Conductor Dr. James Han will lead the SOST Chorus in Robert Schumann’s “Requiem,” opus 148. Schumann, a German composer, was an influential music critic widely regarded as one of the greatest composers of the Romantic era. Also featured with the chorus will be soloists Amanda Kingston, soprano; Ashly Evans, mezzosoprano; Jason Choi, tenor; and Dorian McCall, baritone.

Tickets are $26-$46 and can be purchased online at or by calling (409) 892-2257.

The Julie Rogers Theatre is 765 Pearl St. in downtown Beaumont.
