Atlanta Community Symphony Orchestra – Arts in Music Contest
Want to introduce your students to the possibilities that music can spark imagination and creativity? The ACSO is excited to present the “Arts in Music” contest, free to students in grades 3-5. Students participating in the program will have the chance to experience the melding of music and art. Through listening to music and using painting or drawing to express how it makes them feel, students will begin to understand and process their emotions in new and healthy ways and might learn a new appreciation for a whole new genre of music.
This year’s contest features “The Firebird Suite (1919)” composed by Igor Stravinsky.
After listening to an oral summary of the musical suite from their instructor, then hearing the provided audio of the music, the students will get to respond with their art. Submissions of students’ artwork into the Arts In Music competition will be collected and selected works of art will be honored during the March 17th concert of the Atlanta Community Symphony Orchestra. See the Contest Guide below for specific details including how to prepare and submit student entries.
