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.


Learn more about Link up at the Carnegie Hall website. Link Up Resources can be found here

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.



The safety of our audiences, musicians and staff will always be our first priority. Safety measures such as masking and social distancing may be put in place based on CDC and state and local health department guidelines. Policies and procedures will be clearly communicated on our website and in pre-concert preparation materials.
