• Link Up in the New York City Area: The Orchestra Moves

    Students in grades 3–5 discover how composers and musicians move music through melodies and motifs, and how music moves us. Exploring a range of orchestral repertoire, students sing, play the recorder and/or the violin, compose, and perform in a culminating concert in Carnegie Hall's Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage.
