CARNEGIE HALL’S LINK UP

See Link Up in Action!
In 2013, the MSO was honored to be invited to be a presenter of Link Up, a music education program created by Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute. Link Up gives students in grades 3-5 the opportunity to explore music through a yearlong curriculum of classroom activities during which they learn to play the soprano recorder. A culminating concert brings the students into Overture’s Capitol Theater to perform with the MSO!
“I enjoyed performing with you and it sounded very nice. I hope I see you again. I had a lot of fun!” – 4th Grade Student
“A principal from [another school] was there and said it was the best educational field trip he had ever been to!!”
– Webster and Lebanon Teacher
WANT TO PARTICIPATE? THE CURRICULUM
Link Up begins in September and finishes this year with interactive concerts on Thursday, May 17, 2018, at 10:15 a.m. and 12:15 p.m.
If your school would like to become a part of the program, please contact MSO Director of Education and Community Engagement Kathryn Schwarzmann at (608) 257-3734 X225 or kschwarzmann@madisonsymphony.org.
This year, the MSO is presenting The Orchestra Sings, which is all about musical change. which is all about melody. Classroom activities will guide students through the exploration of popular orchestra repertoire, and students will learn to play popular classical melodies such as Dvorak’s “New World” Symphony and Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy” on recorder. The lessons will also develop students’ skills in listening, note-reading, rhythm, improvisation, composition, and ensemble and rehearsal skills.
