Event Details

A program of Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute presented in partnership with the San Antonio Symphony, Link Up guides students and teachers in grades 3–5 through a yearlong exploration of orchestral repertoire.

Students will sing and play soprano recorder or string instruments while learning basic musical concepts and composing their own music. Linking your classroom to the concert hall, this program provides extensive standards-based teacher and student materials and culminates in an interactive orchestral concert in which students sing or play soprano recorder or string instruments from their seats.  Click here for more information about this program.  

A documentary video about participation in the 2013-14 Link Up program by Schenck Elementary students can be seen to the right.

The San Antonio Symphony’s Young People’s Concerts (YPCs) have introduced youth to live orchestral music since 1943. Simply put, YPCs are a low cost, highly-educational field-trip opportunity for your students. Programs are designed to meet select Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) objectives in fine arts and a rotating core subject area. Geared towards third, fourth, and fifth grade students, YPCs engage students with participatory programs of music and lecture.  Click here for more about Young People's Concerts.
