Link Up: The Orchestra Moves

Concerts for Young People

Students will discover how music compels us to move our bodies and create dance. Together we’ll discover the ways in which music made by the orchestra moves through space from high to low, filling the spaces in between with harmonies, timbres and textures. The Link Up program addresses National Core Arts Standards for Music.

The Link Up: Orchestra Moves concert is sold out! However, more concert tickets may become available at a later date. Join the waiting list to be notified if concert tickets become available by completing this form, and we will call and email you if seats become available!

Performed in Newark

What is Link Up?

For more than 30 years, Link Up—a program of Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute (WMI)—has paired orchestras with students in 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 or play the recorder or violin with the orchestra from their seats.

Link Up provides a free, high-quality, yearlong 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.
