United Methodist Church, Sartell, MN

The World’s Fair has been known for its display of the greatest innovations, technology, science of the time, and musical and visual arts.  CMYO will celebrate the melding of visual with performance arts and discoveries by performing works of music inspired by these great discoveries. Art created by the students will be displayed at the concert.

The musical selections will include selections by Sibelius, movements from the Pictures at an Exhibition by Mussorgsky, and other musical selections that celebrate the visual arts.

CMYO will offer a field trip to the Minneapolis Institute of Art, where students will experience a wide range of visual art which will correlate between the musical styles with the arts influential style of its time. Through this experience, the students will learn about how the many periods (eras) in music overlap the art eras; in addition they will see and hear the contrasts between each era. This will include Baroque, Classical (Neoclassical), and Romantic (Impressionist movement).
