MATTOON -- Brooke Wilson, a sixth grader at St. John's Lutheran School, was recently selected as a top 100 finalist in the "Picture the Music Contest," sponsored by the St. Louis Symphony.
Students listened to "Ritual Fire Dance" by Manuel de Falla then created artwork based on their impressions of the music. More than 12,000 students participated.
Brooke's piece was entitled "Aurora Borealis." It will be on display throughout the St. Louis area over the next few months.
