The Fox Valley Symphony Orchestra, in partnership with The Building for Kids Children's Museum, is excited to be a part of a multi-part collaboration celebrating music and the visual arts in our community.

Student Engagement - Appleton area students in grades 3-4 will learn about and listen to a featured piece of music. After listening and learning, they will respond with the creation of their own artworks in their visual art classes. This year's featured music is: Ein Heldenleben, TrV 190, Op. 40 ("A Hero's Life") by Richard Strauss (1864-1949).

Community Engagement - Throughout the year, local artists will work with the broader community at public events or in small groups to create visual artwork from recycled instruments. If you have a group or public event where you would like to create re-purposed instrument art, please contact Oliver Zornow.

Community Celebration - All 700 pieces are on display as part of our Community Celebration Exhibition. Click Here for more information and for a map of all of the participating locations.

Thank you so much to all of our community partners who make this collaboration possible including:
