Link Up in the New York City Area

The Orchestra Rocks

Link Up guides students in grades 3–5 through a yearlong exploration of orchestral repertoire and music making. This year, we are excited to announce a new version of Link Up: The Orchestra Rocks that explores rhythm, groove, and the influence of rock ‘n roll. Students will explore selections from composers who include Orff, Stravinsky, Chuck Berry, and Jessica Meyer, as well as a new commission by Earl Maneein. At the end of the year, students will sing and play the recorder with a professional orchestra in a culminating concert in Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage. The concerts will take place on May 25, 26, and 27, 2021.
