Link Up New York City
Frequently Asked Questions

Application and Payment

How can my school sign up for Link Up?

To sign up for Link Up, the process is two-fold: Application and Registration. The Application phase will ask you to submit background information about your school culture, distinguishing characteristics, additional arts learning and partnerships, as well as how Link Up fits into your music program’s learning goals for the year. We will review each application, and invite accepted schools to then complete their Registration. Within the Registration phase, links will be sent to accepted schools where you will be invited to select your preferred concert dates and times, as well as the final number of students and teachers that will be participating in the program. Registration links will expire on June 15. Once each concert has reached capacity, you will be asked to choose an alternate concert date.

When is the application due for Link Up?

The Link Up: The Orchestra Sings application period opens Wednesday, April 19, 2017 and closes on Thursday, May 25, 2017. Interested teachers can complete an application by clicking the red “Apply Now” button. Registration links will be sent to accepted schools on Thursday, June 1, 2017, where teachers will select into their preferred concert date and time.

How many teachers can sign up for Link Up via online application?

If there are multiple teachers at one school that are interested in implementing the curriculum, you must select ONE teacher to act as that school’s primary contact. That individual will complete the application and, if accepted, will be responsible for maintaining regular communication with Carnegie Hall staff throughout the year. All teachers implementing the program directly with students are considered participating teachers, and must attend the required professional development workshops, as well as the concert.

Do you have to be a music teacher to implement Link Up?

No. You are not required to be a music teacher to implement Link Up. However, we recommend that teachers have some basic prior knowledge and/or experience with music. The program includes some skills-based work in reading music, singing, and/or playing the soprano recorder. If you are a general classroom teacher interested in participating in Link Up and you are not sure if the program is the right fit, please call Carnegie Hall at 212-424-2013 to speak with one of our staff members.

My school signed up for Link Up but another teacher at the school is implementing the curriculum with my students. Do I have to apply and attend Professional Development?

If there are multiple teachers in your school that are interested in implementing the curriculum, only one representative should apply on behalf of the whole school and indicate other participating teachers in the application. Only teachers implementing the curriculum directly with students are considered participating teachers, and must attend the required professional development workshops, and attend the concert. Teachers attending the concerts but not implementing the curriculum are considered chaperones.

Why do I need to select a first, second, and third choice for the concert?

Each year, we ask teachers to increase their availability by picking a first, second, and third choice for concerts. In the event that we have accepted your application into the program but we are unable to seat your school in your first choice concert date, we will automatically attempt to seat your school for your second or third choice concert. Please hold all three of your preferred concert dates until you receive confirmation of concert date and time from Carnegie Hall.

My class size went up or down since I applied. What do I do?

Please note that after Tuesday, September 26 the number of students on your application cannot be adjusted, nor can refunds be issued. Contact Carnegie Hall staff at 212-424-2013 or via email at linkup@carnegiehall.org with questions.

How much does Link Up cost?

The teacher fee for Link Up is $30 and each student is $6. Schools may bring no more than one chaperone per 10 students, free of charge.

When is payment due for Link Up?

Payment is due by Wednesday, January 31, 2018. For schools paying via purchase order, a copy of the certified purchase order must be submitted by this date via fax to 212-903-0758 or via email to linkup@carnegiehall.org.

Is it possible for my class to see more of Carnegie Hall before or after my Link Up concert?

Tours are available by reservation. Learn more about tours at Carnegie Hall.

When will Carnegie Hall confirm if I have been accepted into the Link Up program?

Carnegie Hall will confirm if you have been accepted into the program by Thursday, June 1, 2017. If you have not yet heard from Carnegie Hall regarding your program status by that time, please contact Carnegie Hall staff at 212-424-2013.

Professional Development Workshop

I participated in Link Up last year. Do I still need to attend a professional development workshop?

Yes, every participating teacher is required to attend a Link Up professional development workshop in the fall regardless of past participation in the program. Teachers who do not attend the required workshop will forfeit participation in the program.

What is the optional professional development workshop in January?

This optional professional development workshop will serve as an additional opportunity to explore the Link Up materials, interact with the artists, and share best practices with fellow Link Up teachers. It is not a requirement of the program, but we highly encourage you to attend.

Where are the Link Up workshops and how do I get there?

All Link Up professional development workshops take place in the Resnick Education Wing at Carnegie Hall. The entrance is at 154 West 57th Street (at Seventh Avenue), just east of Carnegie Hall's main entrance. Get directions to Carnegie Hall.

Where is parking located near Carnegie Hall?

There are several parking garages located near Carnegie Hall. The easiest way to find them is to visit Best Parking.

Materials

When will I get my Link Up materials?

In order to receive Link Up materials, participating teachers must attend a fall Link Up professional development workshop and submit a completed Letter of Agreement. Participating teachers can expect to receive their materials two to three weeks after these requirements are met. Please note that materials will not be sent out until you have completed the required professional development workshop and your completed Letter of Agreement is on file at Carnegie Hall.

Are there Link Up resources for string teachers?

Yes. Each of the Link Up repertoire selections includes bowings for teachers to use with string classes.

Where can I find materials and resources for my classroom?

All participating teachers are encouraged to browse our Digital Library for additional resources relating to Link Up, and to explore the Music Educators Toolbox for free, open-source resources for music educators and administrators.

Concerts

When will I receive my Link Up tickets?

Your Link Up ticket (one ticket per participating teacher for your confirmed numbers of students and chaperones) will be mailed to you approximately one month before your confirmed concert date.

How many parents and other adults may I bring to the Link Up concert?

Schools may bring no more than one chaperone per 10 students, free of charge. For example, if a teacher enrolls a class of 30 students, he or she will automatically receive 30 student seats, three chaperone seats, and one seat for him/herself, for a total of 34 seats. Carnegie Hall will send chaperone wristbands so that adults can be identified when entering the Hall. Please note that parents/adults may not purchase individual tickets themselves, nor can student seats be substituted for adults.

Can parents purchase tickets to the Link Up concert?

No. If parents are interested in attending, they must attend with their child’s class as a chaperone.

Can I take photos and videos at the Link Up concert?

No. In accordance with Carnegie Hall’s policies, photography and videography are strictly prohibited.

What instructions should I give to my bus drivers for the Link Up concert?

Buses should drop off students on the south side of 57th Street, facing east, in front of the main Carnegie Hall marquee. Buses should pick up students on the north side of 57th Street, facing west, following the concert. Please note that buses cannot wait in front of Carnegie Hall during the concert.

When do the doors open before the Link Up concert? When should I arrive?

Doors open 30 minutes before each Link Up concert. The concerts are general admission (no assigned seats), so the earlier you arrive, the closer you will be to the stage. Entry to the Hall will not be granted earlier than 30 minutes prior to each performance.

Artist Information

Where can I find more information about the Link Up artists?

Please consult the back of your Teacher Guide.

Other

How can my students perform onstage during the Link Up concert?

Carnegie Hall staff selects student musicians who play the soprano recorder or violin, or sing in a vocal ensemble, to perform on stage during each Link Up concert. Teachers interested in this opportunity for their students should submit an audition video to Carnegie Hall staff no later than Friday, March 16, 2018.

What do I need to include in my Link Up onstage audition video?

The Link Up audition video should include students playing or singing the entire Link Up repertoire from the Link Up: The Orchestra Sings guide. Each student included on the audition video should have all of the pieces memorized. In addition to the video, you will be asked to complete an application form with your name, school name, the total number of students in the auditioning group, and the instruments on which they will be performing at the concert.

Where can I find additional information about the Link Up repertoire?

Please consult the back of your Teacher Guide.

Where can my students eat lunch before or after the Link Up concert?

If the weather is nice, Central Park is a great place to eat and is accessible just two blocks away from the Hall. There is also a public atrium between Sixth and Seventh Avenues with entrances on West 56th and West 57th streets.

I have suggestions for Carnegie Hall regarding Link Up. How can I share them?

Please email all suggestions to feedback@carnegiehall.org.
