To The Leader


Due to recent heavy rainfall and the continuing threat of storms the rest of this week, the decision has been made to relocate the Symphony at Shangri La indoors to the Lutcher Theater. The event is co-hosted by the Lutcher Theater, Shangri La Gardens and the Symphony of Southeast Texas.

In the true spirit of this great collaboration, the teams are working together to make this experience as comparable as possible to past events at the gardens. The Lutcher will be decorated with fall festive decor, hay bales and pumpkins. There will also be a slide show featuring all of the Scarecrow Festival entries and much more.

Shangri La Botanical Gardens will be open to concert patrons from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday to enjoy the Scarecrow Festival and gardens that are so vibrant and beautiful this time of year. Additionally, concert-goers are encouraged to bring a picnic meal and enjoy a pre-concert meal in the garden.

The gardens will close at 4 p.m., concert-goers are invited to make their way to the Lutcher Theater where the concert will begin at 5 p.m.

Tickets for General Admission seating is $20 Adults, $10 Students; children 5 and under are free, but they do need a ticket.

Roundtrip bus transportation from Beaumont will also be available for $30 through the Symphony of Southeast Texas office.

This wonderful 60-minute concert will feature the Symphony of Southeast Texas, baritone soloist Dalton Woody, trombonist Tim Dueppen, and a great variety of pops and movie classics.

Tickets are available through the Lutcher Theater at or call 409-886-5535 or through the Symphony of Southeast Texas at 409-892-2257.

The Lutcher Theater Treat It Forward Costume Drive collection boxes will be set up in the 1st Floor Lobby. New and gently used Halloween costumes donated will be delivered to the local charity, Treat It Forward to benefit children in Southeast Texas.

This amazing show could not be possible without the support of Concert Sponsors: Invista Corporation, Edaren Foundation, Natalie and S. L. Greenberg, First Financial and Trust, Honeywell, Mercedes Benz of Beaumont, Chevron/Phillips and the Houseman Foundation. Sponsors like this help local arts organizations by playing a role in the education, entertainment, and cultural enrichment of all residents of Southeast Texas.
