The Tobin Center for the Performing Arts is a Presenting Partner for this program.

Presented in partnership with the Weill Music Institute of Carnegie Hall, Link Up guides students grades 3–5 and music teachers through a months-long exploration of orchestral repertoire supported by extensive, freely-provided curriculum materials and online resources.  The program culminates in an inclusive performance, at which students are invited to actively participate by playing recorder or string instrument, singing and dancing along with the orchestra.  Participating teachers can choose from one of three tracked “Program Paths,” whether Basic, Basic+, or Advanced, depending on the desired level of involvement for students.  This year’s Link Up program, The Orchestra Moves, explores movement within music (melody, rhythm, and harmony), as well as how music moves those who experience it.  Through the Link Up repertoire, curriculum activities and a culminating, interactive Symphony concert, together we will discover how the orchestra moves!

This program requires attendance of a free teacher workshop on either Thurs., Oct. 27, 4:30-6:30 pm, or Sat., Oct. 29, 10 am – 12 pm, 2016, at San Antonio Academy, 117 E French Pl, SATX 78212.  A limited number of soprano recorders will be available at no cost to participating public schools that do not already provide them to students.
