  • About SMART

    The San Marcos Artists’ Retention and Training Orchestra (SMART) is dedicated to the enhanced appreciation and understanding of orchestral music in San Marcos and its surrounding communities. This is accomplished by providing an opportunity for developing musicians to perform and learn in a full symphony orchestra as well as through a free, community concert series, various educational outreach opportunities, and instructor and internship programs.

    The SMART Orchestra is designed to be an outlet for every individual interested in the study and performance of orchestral music and encourages participants to contribute their time, talent, and skill to better serve the orchestra’s mission. Whether you are a member of our audience, performing in the SMART viola section or serving on the SMART Board, your enthusiasm and curiosity are welcome in an environment of acceptance and growth.

    We are so pleased that you are interested in the SMART Orchestra and we encourage you to explore the information about our organization on this website or to contact us with any questions you may have.
