The East Texas Symphony Orchestra is back with American classic ‘The General’

A Season to Celebrate: East Texas Symphony Orchestra announces its return to the stage

The 2022/2023 concert series with the East Texas Symphony Orchestra returns Saturday, January 28th with Buster Keaton’s The General. The concert begins at 7:30 PM at the UT Cowan Center. The American Film Institute ranks The General as the 18th best American film of all time. The ETSO will accompany the viewing of the silent classic with a live soundtrack.

“We are excited to add a spectacular visual experience for our audience as they enjoy this performance,” said ETSO Music Director Richard Lee. “We are bringing a variety of concerts that honor and celebrate music this season. Buster Keaton’s The General is no exception!”

Their next concert will be on February 23rd when Sebastian Krunnies, violist in the Berlin Philharmonic, joins the orchestra for “Dance with the Viola.” Followed by the “Tribute to Boston Pops” concert March 25th, as the ETSO plays familiar selections from Les Miz, Harry Potter, and Game of Thrones. The season will finish out on May 13th with Joseph Haydn’s “The Creation,” a moving depiction of the creation of all things as described in the book of Genesis and Milton’s Paradise Lost.
