• Carnegie Hall: A Week of Link Up

    This week, more than 12,000 students have joined Carnegie Hall for the culminating concerts of the Weill Music Institute's interactive Link Up program. Link Up encourages students in grades 3–5 to discover how composers and musicians play with elements of rhythm, creating patterns of sound and silence that are expressive and exciting. Applications for the 2012–2013 school year are available now.
