Picture the Music

Where will the music lead your students’ imaginations? Picture the Music invites grades K-6 to discover orchestral music and respond with paintings and drawings that express creative thought and emotion.

This year 67 schools and more than 12,000 students participated in the free competition. 432 submissions were reviewed, and from this group 100 finalists representing 36 schools were selected. Finalists were honored at a special awards ceremony at Powell Hall on February 26 and their work is featured in a traveling exhibition. 

Exhibition Dates:
Feb 27 - Mar 12 - St. Peters Cultural Arts Centre
