For more than 30 years, Link Up—a program of Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute—has paired orchestras with students ages 8–11 (US grades 3–5) at schools in their local communities to explore orchestral repertoire and fundamental musical skills, including creative work and composition, through a hands-on music curriculum.
Students participating in Link Up attend a culminating concert where they sing and play the recorder or violin with the orchestra from their seats.
Link Up provides a free, high-quality, year-long curriculum that teachers can implement, along with classroom materials, online video and audio resources, and the professional development and support necessary to make the program an engaging experience for students.
