The 2D art students of Tracy Wilmes at South Walton High School enjoyed a performance by Dr. Benjamin Sung, violin instructor at Florida State University, as part of the Rosemary Beach Foundation's Music in Pictures art initiative. Students were delighted to have the opportunity to listen to and interact with Dr. Sung as he played selections designed to deepen the student's' understanding of the theme of this year's Music in Pictures program.
