Picture the Music 2019

student with winning art


Each year the St. Louis Symphony Volunteer Association is flooded with submissions to their Picture the Music contest. Young artists grades K - 6 have the 
opportunity to listen to the selected piece and create a piece of art that tells the story they hear. From these thousands of pieces, the Top 100 are sele
cted and the artists are recognized at Powell Hall downtown. This year, as in so many, Fort Zumwalt’s young artists stood out. Of the Top 100, 20 are Fort Zumwalt students! Special shout outs to Owen Curtis, a third-grader at Dardenne Elementary and Kylee Burton, a kindergartner at Emge Elementary. Each won the Symphony Award, the second-highest recognition in their category. Catch the travelling Picture the Music exhibit at the St. Peters Cultural Arts Center through March 25. Or catch it at the Magic House, March 26 - April 8. Artists listed below were recognized among the Top 100 entrants, from thousands of submissions to the Picture the Music contest.
