We had a new challenge for 2021 called
Get Creative with the Oakville Symphony!
(Contest closed – please check back in 2022)
What is the new contest?
This year we are challenging you to get inspired by some great music and then create something that shows your unique response to the music. The theme is,
‘This music makes me want to…’
What music do we listen to?
Listen to all three pieces of music below, and then choose the one that inspires you the most.
What can our creations be?
Get Creative!! You could paint, draw, sculpt, write, dance, sing, conduct. Do you have another idea? Great!
Who can help me?
Great artists often have a supportive family, cast or crew. The idea should be yours, but you can certainly ask friends and family to help – just be sure to give them credit!
Who is eligible?
Anyone in Junior Kindergarten to Grade 6 living in the Halton Region.
