ASO Composer Project Sticker Voting Winners!

Thank you to the teachers who brought your students to sticker voting for our ASO Composer Projects. These projects enabled students to listen to, and learn about, composers they could hear at an Atlanta Symphony Orchestra concert.  The students did a really great job this year, and we had more than 60 projects entered into the sticker voting!

The winners of the sticker voting were:

·         First Place: Third Grader Trevor G. with the water bottle galaxy representing Gustav Holst’s “The Planets”. Trevor suspended each planet within the 5 gallon water bottle, painted the planets to show the terrain, and attached clues about how each planet’s music sounded, according to Holst.
·         Second Place:  Fifth Graders Cortney K. and Tori W. with the Surprise Party for George Frederick Handel’s “Surprise Symphony”. The poster has people who could have been guests at Handel’s party, complete with “Hello, my name is” tags! Cortney and Tori also created a quiz, learned how to play the theme from the “Surprise Symphony”, composed their own original piece and videotaped all of the pieces for their project. I love our over achievers!
·         Third Place: Fourth Grader Greyson F. created a fantastic game show about Edvard Grieg using an advent calendar. He included awesome and challenging questions, a well-designed presentation board, and he even had a cute game show host!
