Link Up For National and International Partners
Join a growing number of Link Up partner orchestras across the country and around the world and watch as your orchestra's education program grows alongside ours. Partners can utilize any of the program materials—including teacher and student resources, concert scripts, and concert visuals—in their own communities free of charge to engage local students and teachers in musical learning and exploration.
During the 2018–2019 season, the program will be implemented by more than 110 partner orchestras, serving approximately 450,000 students and teachers. These partnerships span the US from Alaska to Florida, and also have international reach, including organizations in Canada, Brazil, Colombia, Kenya, Japan, and Spain.
