Students in grades 3-5 discover how composers create musical movement using elements such as motif, melodic direction, steps and leaps, dynamics, and orchestration. Exploring a range of orchestral repertoire, students sing, play the recorder and/or the violin, compose, and perform in a culminating concert in Albany's Municipal Auditorium.
Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute’s Link Up program pairs orchestras with area students in grades 3-5 to explore orchestral repertoire through a hands-on music curriculum. Weill Music Institute provides each student with a workbook to use with their teachers. In addition, students learn and prepare songs to perform with the orchestra at the Link Up concert during the school day.
