The San Marcos Artists’ Retention and Training (SMART) Orchestra is hosting their fourth concert of the Season IX “Sounds of the Siren” with a Social Reception fundraiser to follow.

The POPS! Concert will be held at the First United Methodist Church, located at 129 East Hutchinson St., this Sunday, Feb. 25 from 3 - 4 p.m., with attendance free and open to the public. Immediately after the concert is a social reception being held onsite at the Activity Hall, with all proceeds directly benefiting the SMART Orchestra in their efforts to provide access to quality symphony music and instruction throughout the Central Texas community.

The SMART Orchestra is dedicated to the enhanced appreciation and understanding of orchestral music and provides an opportunity for developing musicians to perform and learn in a full symphony setting. Additionally, the organization offers a free community concert series, various educational outreach opportunities and as instructor and internship opportunities.

Following the performance, the SMART Orchestra has planned a fundraising event and social gathering for attendants to enjoy light refreshments and an opportunity to meet the musicians. The event is family-friendly and will offer various games and activities for participants to partake in while benefiting the community orchestral group.
