Annual Art Contest

The New Haven Symphony Orchestra is kicking off its 125th season by asking for submissions to its first Art Contest! We need covers for our Program Notes for Kids, which are written for kids to read during our Classics Series concerts. Winners and their families will receive free tickets to the concert on which their artwork is featured.

Your artwork can be of anything you like! You can draw the orchestra and its musicians, your favorite instruments, how music makes you feel, great composers, or any type of abstract art.
