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 months-long exploration of orchestral repertoire which culminates in a hands-on, participatory concert. This year's Link Up program, The Orchestra Moves, explores movement within music (melody, rhythm, and harmony), as well as how music moves those who experience it. Using the extensive, freely-provided curriculum materials and online resources, teachers can choose from one of three tracked "Program Paths," whether Basic, Basic+, or Advanced, depending on the desired level of involvement for students. Through the Link Up repertoire, hands-on-activities, and a culminating, interactive Symphony performance, together we will discover how an orchestra moves!
The Tobin Center for the Performing Arts is a Presenting Partner for this program.
