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 are provided CD recordings of selections from this year's student concerts, along with notes from WPO conductor Susan Davenny Wyner that introduce each composition and provide information about orchestras and their instruments.
A brief video featuring this year's Art in Music winners was produced by Jeremy Scott Films. The Warren Philharmonic family thanks Amanda Winner and Jeremy Merkel for donating their time and talent! Watch the Vimeo video. (46 sec.)
More than 400 entries were submitted. Thanks to all the students and educators who participated!
