Calling all photographers! The Fort Collins Symphony is seeking photographs celebrating the vibrant activities Fort Collins has to offer.  Poudre Canyon, kayaking, Old Town, biking, Horsetooth, your favorite hideaway, we want to see them all!  The top 75 to 100 photographs will be featured in the Symphony’s March 5, 2016 Image-Ination concert where Westwater Arts Creative Director, Nicholas Bardonnay, will create an innovative photo-choreographed piece about Fort Collins set to the music of A Fiddler’s Fancy by Richard Meyer and Central Coach Special by Calvin Custer.

Symphonic photo-choreography is an innovative art form that engages audiences with evocative, photos, choreographed and performed live to selected works of classical music. As the Fort Collins Symphony performs, the audience will be treated to precisely cued images that fill an immense 440-square-foot, three-panel, panoramic screen with single, double, and triple image combinations, creating this multi-sensory experience.

Both amateur and professional photographers are invited to submit images reflecting Northern Colorado’s natural beauty, culture, and character.
