The Warren Philharmonic Orchestra sponsors the Art in Music Contest for Trumbull County students in grades 3 through 8, where visual art is created about the orchestra's instruments and its music performed at each year's student concerts. Artwork should express the entrant's feelings about the music and the concert experience. Teachers were provided CD recordings of selections from this year's student concerts, along with notes from WPO conductor Susan Davenny Wyner that introduce each composition.
Art in Music Contest winners were announced at the student concerts at Lakeview High School Auditorium on Thursday, October 27. Gift cards were presented at the orchestra's Family Concert on Sunday, October 30, at Christ Episcopal Church, 2627 Atlantic Street, NE, Warren.
