We are thrilled to announce that our ICES Art students did exceptionally well once again in the 67th Annual Symphony in Color Contest!
Symphony in Color is an enrichment program sponsored by the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra Association and Ronald McDonald House Charities in which the children are asked to interpret symphonic music through their art. Its purpose is to develop an appreciation of both music and the visual arts. Two-time Maestro Winner and ICES Art teacher Mrs. Stuckey guides students through the artistic interpretations while ICES Music teacher Mrs. Longworth reinforces the learning, teaching the intricacies of the music later on in the year.
To earn honors, ICES students had to compete first with their fellow students, then with students from other schools throughout Indiana. Competing entries represented 16 counties, and approximately 11,783 students actually participated in the program.
From all entries, 100 finalists are chosen. And from that number, just 35 are selected to win Gold Ribbons. Gold-Ribbon-winning artwork was exhibited in the Oval Promenade Gallery of the Hilbert Circle Theatre home of the Indianapolis Orchestra. A special reception, an Awards Tea, was held to honor these 35 students. Following the Hilbert Circle Theatre exhibit wrapping up at the end of March, the Gold Ribbon artwork will join the remaining finalists’ work for a stunning exhibit at the Indiana State Museum from April 2-May 4, 2018. Please join us in congratulating our hard-working and talented students:
