Picture the Music

Where will the music lead your students’ imaginations? Picture the Music invites students grades K-6 to discover orchestral music and respond with paintings and drawings that express creative thought and emotion. This season, students explore Waltz from Khachaturian's Masquerade Suite

The SLSO has made the difficult decision to suspend the remainder of the Picture the Music traveling Art Exhibit this season. This decision was made out of the concern for the safety of our volunteers and to reduce the spread of COVID-19. The PTM Art Exhibit is transported around the bi-state by a dedicated and passionate team of SLSO volunteers, many of whom are at a higher risk for attracting COVID-19.

Photos of the Top 100 Finalists' artwork can be viewed here.

At this time, artwork pickup dates and times have not been rescheduled, however we will be sure to keep you updated should that change.

Congratulations to our 2020 Picture the Music Winners!

This season, 66 schools and more than 12,200 students participated in the free art competition. 407 submissions were received, and from this group 100 finalists representing 42 schools were selected. Awards for the top 100 finalists were presented at a ceremony on stage at Powell Hall on March 4.
