Presented by Rosemary Beach Foundation, the 12th Annual Music in Pictures is an educational arts initiative and juried art contest open to ALL students in grade K-12 in the Walton County school system – both public and private.
Created in collaboration with professional musicians and university faculty, Music in Pictures encourages lifelong appreciation of symphonic music, enhances learning and provides educational enrichment.

2022 OUTREACH FELLOWSHIP WITH FLORIDA STATE UNIVERSITY
Under the direction of Dr. Jihye Chang Sung, Rosemary Beach Foundation has instituted an outreach fellowship program with Florida State University.
The 2022 fellows were recommended and selected by FSU College of Music Faculty. In September, the graduate musicians participated in an intensive workshop where they developed methods to engage students and the community in active listening.
