Picture the Music

Where will the music lead 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. In 2020, students explored Waltz from Khachaturian's Masquerade Suite

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.
