Farmersville Elementary students, first through fifth grade, participated in the 2011 Symphony of Color Art Contest.
Children listened to music pieces titled “Play of the Waves” from La Mer and “Tunis-Nefta” from Escales.
Students then painted their interpretation of the music. Many paintings were completed, but each school could submit only five.
Four winners were from Farmersville, including: Riley Hollinger, Conductor’s award, and the 5th grade award; Blake McFadin, the first grade award; Samuel Heckman, the second grade award; and Taylor Collins, third grade, received the Honorable Mention award. The artwork will be shown on a screen above the orchestra during the Young People’s Concerts on March 16-18.
The award presentation will take place during the Philharmonic’s “Ports of Call” concert on Saturday, March 19 at 7:30 p.m. Winning Artists will be called to the stage to receive recognition, as well as cash awards and/or other prizes.
The artwork will remain on display in the Victory Theater lobby during this concert so that concert patrons might view the work.
