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 explored Manuel de Falla’s Ritual Fire Dance. For more information download the 2018/2019 Picture the Music Teacher's Guide.
