Education Concerts

We are thrilled to announce that Orchestra Indiana is partnering with Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute to present Link Up: The Orchestra Sings for our 2022 Young People’s Concert. This concert, which is free for 4th and 5th grade school groups, will explore how composers create great melodies with selections such as “Ode to Joy”, “Firebird Suite,” “Simple Gifts,” and more. Orchestra Indiana is proud to offer an annual educational concert as an introduction to the orchestra for our east-central Indiana community!

About Link Up

Link Up is a highly participatory music education program which connects the concert hall and the classroom in a real and tangible way. Participating music teachers implement the Link Up curriculum through the school year leading up to a culminating concert, in which the students will join the orchestra by singing and playing recorder from their seats. Schools will receive teacher guides, student workbooks, recorders if needed, and professional development support at no cost. The culminating concert will take place on Friday, May 20, at 10 am in Emens Auditorium.

Because of the participatory nature of this program, advance registration is required. Teachers interested in adopting the Link Up program and bringing their students on May 20 should contact Dr. James Thompson at 765-216-0970 for additional information.
