The Symphony of Color Art Contest, presented in cooperation with the Koch Family Children's Museum of Evansville and the Evansville Museum of Arts, History, and Science, invites students in 1st through 5th grades to create visual art inspired by great works of music. The contest is designed to further students' interest in classical music, challenge their creative abilities and enhance their concept of music as a universal language. Symphony of Color also addresses important National and Indiana Standards in Arts Education that relate to understanding the relationship between music and the other arts.
One winner will be chosen from each grade level (1-5). Four of these winners will receive a $50 cash prize. One winner will receive a Grand Prize of $100 cash. In addition to the grade level awards, three special award recipients will be selected - the Conductor's Award, the CMOE Award, and the Museum Director's Award. All winners will receive 2 tickets to the Evansville Philharmonic Orchestra's Opening Concert Classics Series concert on September 30th, 2023. Winners will be recognized from the stage and artwork will be displayed on the stage projector during intermission.
