Every year, we ask our YPC students to write a brief essay or draw a poster that answers the question: What Does Music Mean to You?
And every year, we get so many wonderful expressions of their thoughts and feelings, through the written word, or, their drawings.
We select 3 posters and 3 essays to showcase at the concert, at the New Britain Public Library, and here, on our website.
AND, we select a 4th poster to be next year’s concert program cover.
We are delighted to inform you of this year’s winners:
