"Oh What A Night" with The Symphony of Southeast Texas and New Haven OrchestrasUpon creation of his signature show featuring the biggest hits of Broadway, Connor traverses America this fall bringing the performance to Pops Orchestras across the country. Starting in October with The Symphony of Southeast Texas in picturesque Beaumont, just outside of Houston, and continuing with the New Haven Symphony in Connecticut come November.
Under the direction of Maestro Chelsea Tipton, a fellow Eastman School of Music alumni, Connor first travels to Southeast Texas, just outside of Houston on Saturday, October 8th, to perform his now signature pops show with the orchestra.
The Symphony of Southeast Texas (SOST) has a 62 year history of providing outstanding music and grand performances in Beaumont. Formerly the Beaumont Symphony Orchestra, the SOST was founded by the Beaumont Symphony Society in 1953. The first performance, held on May 12th of that year, was the start of the Beaumont Symphony Society's mission to advance and promote a further appreciation of symphonic music, and to present student concerts to further the musical education of the region.
And come November 13th and 14th, audiences in New Haven, Connecticut will be treated to two performances of the show. Now in its 123rd year of operation, the New Haven Symphony Orchestra presents both classical repertoire and pops concerts all season long. The orchestra has performed regularly in New Haven and has also toured throughout Connecticut and beyond (including performances at Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall); it has given numerous radio broadcasts and made the world-premiere recording of the complete five-movement version of Mahler’s first symphony. We hope to see you there!
