Link Up to Conclude School Year with Interactive Concerts for Students, 5/20-22

This spring, Link Up-Carnegie Hall's music education program for grades 3 to 5-concludes its 29th school year with thrilling interactive children's concerts in communities across the United States and abroad, including six performances in New York City over three days, May 20-22, in Carnegie Hall's Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage. More than 15,000 students and teachers from the New York City area will attend and participate in an hour-long performance featuring the Orchestra of St. Luke's, conductor Rossen Milanov, and composer and host Thomas Cabaniss. The program and concerts are presented by Carnegie Hall's Weill Music Institute.

In this year's program, The Orchestra Sings, New York area students have explored melody through a range of colorful orchestral repertoire in preparation for the culminating concerts at Carnegie Hall, where they will perform along with the orchestra by singing and playing the recorder or violin. The program includes music by Beethoven, Dvo?ák, Mendelssohn, Stravinsky, Thomas Cabaniss, and Jim Papoulis. The Orchestra Sings is one of three distinctive, year-long Link Up curriculums, along withThe Orchestra Moves, examining musical movement, and The Orchestra Rocks, an exploration of rhythm.

In addition to the students and teachers participating directly with Carnegie Hall in New York City, orchestras across the country and around the world are now taking part in Link Up. Partner orchestras can utilize any of the program materials-including teacher and student guides, concert scripts, and concert visuals-in their own communities, free of charge, to engage local students and teachers in musical learning and exploration. Over the past school year, 60 orchestras and thousands of teachers-from Alaska to Florida, as well as internationally in Canada, Spain, and Japan-have introduced over 250,000 students to the joys of orchestral music through Link Up. Next year, Link Up continues to expand, reaching an estimated 70 orchestras and communities around the world. For a list of partner orchestras, click here.
