Link Up: The Orchestra Sings

Download the Link Up concert order form 

The Milwaukee Symphony partners with Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute to bring the Link Up program to our community. Link Up pairs orchestras across the country with students in grades 3-5 at schools in their local communities to explore orchestra repertoire through a year-long, hands-on music curriculum.

Your school will receive:

  • Link Up curriculum guide for teachers
  • CD and DVD resources to accompany curriculum
  • Link Up workbooks for each student
  • Professional development session
  • Access to online resources at Carnegie Hall’s website
  • An interactive Link Up concert featuring the MSO

Your school will need to provide transportation to and from the Link Up Concert and, if possible, recorders for students to participate in the curriculum. If you do not have recorders and/or are not able to purchase them, the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra will provide recorders for your students.

► Learn more about Link Up at the Carnegie Hall website.

Composers and musicians create melodies, which can be sung or played on instruments. When an orchestra plays these melodies, the orchestra sings. Students explore melody in a range of colorful orchestral repertoire by singing, playing the recorder or violin, composing, and performing in a culminating concert!

“We are still digesting the magnificent experience we had at Link Up: “The Orchestra Rocks”. The anticipation and excitement before the concert was great, and the performance was phenomenal. These children will carry the music themes and memories their whole lives.” –
