Link Up, a program of Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute, pairs orchestras across the country with students in grades 3 to 5 at schools in their local communities to explore orchestral repertoire through a hands-on music curriculum. Students participating in Link Up attend a culminating concert where they sing and play recorder or violin with the orchestra from their seats. Students also compose and perform their own pieces inspired by the orchestral music they studied.
Since 2003, Carnegie Hall has partnered with local, professional, community, and university orchestras to offer Link Up at sites across the United States. Through this partnership, Carnegie Hall aims to support orchestras’ existing education programs, strengthen their partnerships with local schools, and provide the highest quality curricula, resources, professional development, and other support.
Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute provides each student with a workbook to study with their music teachers (or classroom teacher). The Spokane Symphony performs the interactive Link Up concert at the Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox.
