music in pictures
Chang has been involved with an interdisciplinary outreach project, “Music in Pictures,” in Walton County Schools, through which she has reached thousands of K through 12 students since 2011 through her lecture recitals and presentations.
In 2013-2014 she was the artist in residence for this program, supported by the Specific Cultural Project grant from the Florida Division of Cultural Affairs. She has designed and conducted a year-long outreach program including lectures and performances for 15 underserved Walton County schools and seminar and workshop for the music and fine art teachers.
Funded by the Rosemary Beach Foundation, this effort engages teachers and students in a year-long project that raises classical music and art literacy in the schools by letting them listen to the music and create artwork inspired by it.
2020-2021 is the 10th anniversary of this project. Because of the COVID-19, in person presentations are not possible, but Jihye will present virtual classes and performances.
