— The collaboration involves 5th grade students in Beloit, the Beloit Janesville Symphony Orchestra, and Beloit Cable Access.

The goal was to provide the music background for a claymation video produced by a Beloit College student. Once the kids created the music, Rob Tomaro of the Beloit Symphony Orchestra wrote the score while the orchestra performed the piece.


Dave Knutson of Beloit Cable Access submitted a documentary of the process to the Wisconsin Association of PEG channels and won the "achievement of excellence" award.


You can view the documentary on YouTube under the title "Composing Kids."
