Link Up

The Orchestra Sings

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
  • Link Up workbooks for each student
  • Professional development session
  • Access to online resources, including audio and visual, via 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.

The Milwaukee Symphony partners with Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute to bring the Link Up program to our community. Melody is a universal element of music. Composers and musicians create melodies, which can be sung or played on instruments. Through the Link Up repertoire, students explore the ways composers and musicians use melodies to “sing” in this culminating concert with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra.

"I liked that the show was interactive; like when we would sing and play the recorder. I liked that most of the songs were intense and exciting.”
-Sage, Roosevelt School student

“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.” –

Peggy Paar, General Music Teacher at Roosevelt Elementary, Wauwatosa.
