What is SM&RT

You think that classical music is too complicated, difficult to understand and boring? Think again!

Modo Cultural organization presents the first edition of SM&RT: Subtitled Music and Art. SM&RT is an eleven-days festival which will take place in the Central Military Club in Sofia from 12th to 22nd May under the Patronage of Mr. Anu Anguelov, Minister of Defense of the Republic of Bulgaria.

The festival will include daily concerts with subtitles, Pillow concerts, pre-concert talks, art workshops for children, musician-to-musician meetings, park installation with old pianos, originally wrapped by famous Bulgarian visual artists.

Concerts with Subtitles

During the SM&RT festival distinguished musicians from Bulgaria, Romania, Lithuania, Israel, UK and USA will perform a series of chamber music concerts in the Concert Hall of the Central Military Club in Sofia.

The concerts will be accompanied by subtitles on a screen. They will present the musical works in an accessible way and will guide the listener through some characteristics of the music which are usually not perceived by the non-professionals. The goal is to make classical music more accessible and to attract new audience members that does not necessarily belong to the regular concert-goers. The idea of subtitled music is very innovative not only for Bulgaria but also worldwide.
