Orchestra Indiana is thrilled to be partnering with Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute to present Link Up: The Orchestra Rocks on our 2023-2024 season. The Link Up concert is free for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade school groups:
- Wednesday, March 13, 2024 at 10 am in Emens Auditorium, Muncie, IN
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.
Link Up: The Orchestra Rocks will focus on how composers use groove, pulse, and rhythm. Highlights of the concert repertoire include:
- Excerpts from The Rite of Spring by Igor Stravinsky
- “La Follia” by Antonio Vivaldi
- “Johnny B. Goode” by Chuck Berry
- And much more!
Teachers interested in adopting the Link Up curriculum and bringing their students to a culminating concert must register their schools with us by November 29, 2023.
