The Olympics give athletes from around the world an opportunity to come
together and compete. It is like a collage of talents and hope.
Sport creates friendship among athletes, young people and communities.
When the Olympic athletes march in the parade of nations, the different
uniforms and flags create a collage of colors and textures.
Listen to the Olympic Anthem “Bugler’s Dream” written by Leo Arnaud.
Arnaud was born in France but immigrated to the USA and worked for MGM
Studios in Hollywood, CA as an arranger, composer, and orchestrator from
1936 to 1966.
John Williams wrote the “Olympic Fanfare & Theme” in 1984. It is the fast
trumpet music you hear during American TV broadcasts of the Olympics.
Compare the tempo & rhythm of Arnaud’s piece with Williams’ Imperial March.
If I clap a rhythm, can you guess which song it is?

When you create art using small glass tiles, it’s called a mosaic.
This sculpture garden in Escondido, CA is covered in colorful tiles.

person. How would they feel?
