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 (hard copy books WILL be available for 2018.19)
  • 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.

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 orchestral repertoire through a year-long hands-on music curriculum. Rhythm is a universal element of music. Composers and musicians play with elements of musical time, creating patterns of sounds and silence that are expressive and exciting. Through the Link Up repertoire, students explore rhythm, pulse, and groove, and play and sing alongside the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra 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.” –
