Link Up in the
New York City Area:
The Orchestra Sings

This year, we are excited to announce the return of The Orchestra Sings, which explores melody as a universal element of music. Through the Link Up repertoire and hands-on activities, students will analyze and interpret the essential musical structures of melody and what makes the orchestra sing. Repertoire includes works by Beethoven, Copland, Dvoƙák, and more! The culminating performance will feature students singing, performing on recorder or violin, and dancing from their seats along with the Orchestra of St. Luke's in Carnegie Hall's Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage.

Program Details

  • An interactive concert in Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage featuring a professional orchestra, conductor, and Link Up students from the Tri-State Area
  • A required professional development workshop, plus optional workshops for additional professional development and program enrichment
  • The Orchestra Sings teacher guide and one soprano recorder for each teacher
  • The Orchestra Sings student guide and one soprano recorder for each student
  • Online materials and resources, including audio recordings and videos, additional lessons, and multimedia content
