Ms. Kathy Melde

VP Membership

Ms. Kathy Melde has been with the SMART Orchestra for 3 seasons as a violist. She joined in Fall in 2018 after meeting Chris Hanson, the founder, who encouraged her to join. She enjoys the community of musicians and the impact on the San Marcos Community.

Kathy started her journey with the viola in 4th grade and played through 10th grade. She would periodically pick the viola up throughout her adult life with her parents and husband’s encouragement. In 2017, 1 year prior to joining the SMART orchestra she picked the viola up yet again. As VP of Membership her goal is to help every orchestra member to feel connected to the group and have an enjoyable experience playing in SMART.
