The Akron Symphony Orchestra presents a virtual performance of Link Up: The Orchestra Sings.
Developed by the Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute for students in grades three through five, The Orchestra Sings introduces students to melody, which is one of the universal elements of music. Composers and musicians create melodies, which can be sung or played on instruments. The orchestra sings when its musicians play melodies on their instruments. Through the Link Up repertoire, hands-on activities, and a culminating interactive performance with a professional orchestra, we will discover how the orchestra sings.
The Link Up program addresses National Core Arts Standards for Music and Common Core State Standards. To learn more, visit The Orchestra Sings page on Carnegie Hall’s website: https://tinyurl.com/yz4dnb75.
