Presented by Rosemary Beach Foundation, 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. During the Fall 2023, students discovered the power of music through interactive classroom presentations and performances by classical musicians.
