New Texas Sinfonia continues their third season with Chocolats Symphoniques on Friday, February 16 at 7:30 pm and Saturday, February 17 at 3 pm at First Presbyterian Church in Tyler. Tickets for adults are $20. Students (of all ages) and children are free admission. An informal pre-concert conversation will be held 30 minutes prior to each performance with artistic director Weston Jennings.

This multisensory concert features Chocolats Symphoniques by Canadian composer Maxime Goulet (b. 1980): an orchestral suite in four short movements in which each movement evokes a different flavor of chocolate. The audience will be invited to eat four small chocolates when the corresponding flavor is being played. The program also includes Sergei Prokofiev’s Classical Symphony, Felix Mendelssohn’s Hebrides Overture and concludes with Ludwig van Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7.

Virginia Elizondo, board president of New Texas Sinfonia, says “What a combination to have this delicious tasting concert just after Valentine’s Day! This experience is sure to bring absolute bliss to both ears and tastebuds.”

Tickets for all performances are available now at or by calling (833) 937-8661. Chocolates can be purchased online with your tickets or at the concert during intermission.
