2024 Fusion of Concert Colors Artwork

To slow down the playback, select setting on the screen, then select a playback speed of 0.5 or 0.25.

FAME’s Fusion of Concert Colors promotes interdisciplinary arts understanding by encouraging students to draw connections between musical selections and the visual arts. FAME teachers guide students to create artwork as they listen to music from our current cultural arts focus. All northern Indiana elementary and middle FAME schools are invited to participate in this program.

Each year FAME partners with the Fort Wayne Philharmonic to select an orchestral work reflecting the year’s cultural focus. Students listen to this music and then create their own original artwork inspired by the music. The artwork is then displayed at the Auer Center for Art & Culture and one student’s artwork from each grade (K-9) is selected as the FAME artwork of the year and the artwork is used to promote the FAME Festival throughout the region. At the Fort Wayne FAME Festival, the Fort Wayne Philharmonic Youth Symphony and Concert Orchestras perform the music that inspired the student’s art pieces and a giant slideshow displays all the selected art pieces behind the playing musicians. The honored students and families are guests at the FAME Festival Celebration of Youth Concert.  The Fusion slide show will be on March 16, 2024, 5 pm.

Participating schools must submit their student’s artwork by date December 8, 2023, to the FAME office at 300 E. Main St., Fort Wayne, IN 46802.

All artwork will be available for pickup after the General Meeting in September, 2024.
