Images in Music Project

Images in Music Project
Richmond Symphony Orchestra
Richmond Art Museum


The goal of this project is to engage area photographers in creating and submitting photos taken for and inspired by The Enormous Room by American Composer David Diamond.

Photos selected will be projected for the entire Civic Hall audience to see during the September 17, 2016 RSO Concert in Civic Hall for the Performing Arts. Any artist who submits images will receive two complimentary tickets to attend the performance.

Photographers should first listen to the music in this link. Inspiration should be drawn from any and all sources the artist feels are suggested by the music. No specific guidelines in this area will be given. It is left completely to the imagination of each artist.

Each artist may submit up to three photographs digitally. Make sure they are all JPEG files, no smaller than 1024 x 768 pixels.

Images should be emailed to

RAM Executive Director Shaun Dingwerth and RSO Music Director Guy Bordo will select the photos to be presented. Both organizations may use submitted photography for publicity purposes.
