The Marshall County Strings Program will present “A Night at the Movies” on Tuesday, February 20, 2018, at 6:30 pm in the John Marshall High School Center for Performing Arts.

The concert will feature cinematic music from popular soundtracks including “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” “The Avengers,” “Pirates of the Caribbean” and “Moana.”

Donations will be accepted at the door to benefit the Kingwood High School Orchestra Program in Houston, Texas which was impacted by Hurricane Harvey this past summer. Money collected will also be used to establish a fund for a graduating student from the Marshall County Strings Program for a college scholarship.

The Marshall County Strings Program was established in 2008 and is under the direction of Shelby Genberg, Justin Jones and Alex Talkowski.
