2016 - 2017 MUSIC EDUCATION PROGRAM:
Inspiration! Connecting Music and Art
The 2016-2017 educational program demonstrated the links between art, words, and music, with selections like Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet Fantasy-Overture, Ravel’s Mother Goose Suite, and Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition. Students from each district are given the opportunity to submit their own artwork and poetry in response to two of the works on the program, which are displayed during the orchestra’s performance in school.
