Painting Music

August 20, 2019 | 10:30 am - 1:00 pm

We are excited to announce that artists and musicians from Music Mountain are bringing their popular program, Painting Music, to the Museum!

Children and their caregivers are invited to listen to music performed live while they translate what they hear in that music into a personal work of art that they can take home. They will also have the opportunity to participate in a large-scale collaborative art project. Canvas, paints, and brushes are provided free of charge. Local, and New York City-based, artist Vincent Inconiglios leads this activity to get everyone’s creativity flowing.

Music Mountain artistic director, Oskar Espina Ruiz, clarinet, joins forces with Fiona Ocain, flute, recent Connecticut College graduate and UMass Amherst graduate flute performance major, to perform Villa-Lobos Choros No. 2. Samuele Parrini, violin, and Ya-Chen Jessy Lee, cello, two Music Mountain Academy young artists, perform Ravel Sonata. Samuele is pursuing his undergraduate degree in violin performance at McGill University in Canada. Ya-Chen Jessy Lee is working on her doctoral degree in cello performance at the University of North Texas, Denton.

Painting Music 2019 is made possible in part through a generous grant from the Lucia Tuttle Fritz Fund, a fund of the Northwest Connecticut Community Foundation, Inc.

This program is included in the price of admission. Pre-register in person, by phone, or by email to
