Choir Atlanta 2012

Orchestra Performance Drawing Prompt

For the orchestra’s performance at the all-state music conference in January, we are looking for student-made art to project on screens while we play. The idea is to have the artwork be connected to the music.

We are performing four different pieces, and we are looking for art for each of the pieces. I have a word or phrase for each piece—the word or phrase describes what the piece means to the students. You could make your drawing based on the word/phrase, or listen to the music itself and respond to it.

Any art chosen to be shown at the performance will receive a $20 prize.
