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 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.
This is a national program of Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute.
The New Jersey Symphony Concerts for Young People are also supported by Marjorie Bunnell Charitable Fund, Richard H. Holzer Memorial Foundation, Merck Foundation, Turrell Fund and Victoria Foundation.
Programs and artists are subject to change.
