Link Up addresses the urgent need for music instruction and resources by providing 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.
For more than 30 years, Link Up, a program of Carnegie Hall's Weil Institute, has paired orchestras with students in grades 3 through 5 in their communities to explore orchestral repertoire and fundamental musical skills, including creative work and composition, through a hands-on music curriculum
The Charlotte Symphony is one of more than 100 national and international organizations chosen for this program.
Since 2003, Carnegie Hall has partnered with professional, community, and university orchestras across the US and around the world to support their existing education programs and strengthen their partnerships with local schools.
This year's theme is The Orchestra Sings. Students will learn about melody as a universal element of music. Composers and musicians create melodies, which can be sung or played on instruments. The orchestra sings when its musicians play melodies on their instruments.
