Over 390 students from the Walton County School District participated in Sinfonia Gulf Coast’s “Paint the Music” on January 20, 2017 at the Destiny Worship Center in Miramar Beach! The event is an interactive art and music project for students in grades 3-8 where the students listen to sound samples of classical music and literally “paint” what they hear.  The students are able to experience the musical selections live with a concert featuring Sinfonia Gulf Coast, and special guest artist this year, violinist Jennifer Koh.
