Fridays 4th of July festivities included a performance by the Northeast Texas Symphony Orchestra. I have tried to find information about them on the internet but have been coming up empty. Best I can gather is they are a group of 60 professional musicians who come from Paris, TX to Dallas, TX. and all areas in between. I have only been to the Dallas Symphony once. It was a casual Friday performance (that means I could wear jeans). I wasn't expecting much from NETSO, but they are very good. If you have a chance to go hear them play, do it. If anyone has any additional information about the orchestra please feel free to leave it in the comments.
The blooming crepe myrtles made for a beautiful backdrop.
The quality is not very good, but here is a short clip of the orchestra performing Hello Dolly.
A second longer clip is available on the you tube link to the right.
