SMPAA is happy to celebrate the 33rd year of our Summer in the Park!


      2018 was a busy and successful year for the San Marcos Performing Arts Association (SMPAA). In March, we hosted a performance of Schubert’s Winterreise followed by the most attended Summer in the Park in our 32-year history. 
       In December, we partnered with the SMART Orchestra to produce and perform the Christmas Section of the Messiah at the First Baptist Church for over 500 attendees. The Pass the Hat contributions went to support the SMART Orchestra.

       While we did receive some support from other sources, including $500 from the City of San Marcos, our costs for the director, accompanist, and miscellaneous expenses were over $3,000.       We need your help to replenish these funds and to continue to provide these kinds of cultural opportunities in San Marcos, by becoming a member. SMPAA’s membership rates are intentionally very affordable: Individual $15+, Family $25+, and Business $50+. These donations are tax deductible. 

        We will post our members’ names on our website and invite them to a yearly meeting for the election of the SMPAA Board of Directors. If you would like to play a larger role in insuring community chorus in San Marcos, please contact me.

June 14, 2018 – Walt Wilkins and the Mystiqueros

We’ve been a home for wayward souls, and a circus. A house band, a backing band. Openers, Headliners. A touring band playing original music that fears no one, ever. We’re a band that can musically reference Sly Stone & Ray Price in one song. We can play the fire out of all sorts of stuff, as long as we don’t have to do it the same way twice. We can play four hours, straight – You know that. We’re a band that can play your wedding ceremony, as sweet as you please, and then shake the walls of the bar down the street an hour later. We’re the Mystiqueros.
