LinkUP! (Grades 4-6)

Watch the pieces come together for your students (grades 4–6)—LinkUP! helps you guide them through music's building blocks, from the simplest to the most complex works. Focusing this year on Theme and Variation, LinkUP! unites the classroom with the performance hall, giving students the opportunity to sing and play recorders under the baton of conductor John Morris Russell and the Orchestra of St. Luke's. The program includes a Professional Development Workshop for teachers and a standards-based curriculum complete with activity books, audio CD, and recorders, and admission to one of the LinkUP! concerts below for each participating student and teacher.

Program Details

LinkUP! Theme and Variation
In May, for our 23rd fully interactive LinkUP! concert in Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage, we proudly present conductor John Morris Russell, the Orchestra of St. Luke's, and students from throughout New York City and the Tri-State area. Students will sing and play the recorder, using skills they have developed throughout the year with the help of their teachers and the LinkUP! curriculum. Each concert will last approximately one hour.

Participating LinkUP! teachers are required to attend one of the Professional Development Workshops at Carnegie Hall. During the workshops, teachers receive the LinkUP! curriculum materials and learn how to implement the curriculum in their own classrooms and share best practices for the program with their peers. Following the workshop, teachers will receive student materials. This year, workshops emphasize teacher development through creative approaches to music in the classroom.


Unless otherwise noted, all workshops will be held at Carnegie Hall's Kaplan Space at 154 West 57th Street, 5th Floor. A limited number of off-site workshops will be offered. For more information, please check this site at a later date or contact us.
