Link Up

Elementary school program

link up is A PROGRAM FOR GRADES 3-5

FROM THE WEILL MUSIC INSTITUTE OF CARNEGIE HALL

This comprehensive program involves students in playing an instrument as well as the application of music concepts. Students learn to play the recorder and sing using workbooks and teacher guides, provided by the Institute, offering three levels of competence, ranging from learning the basics to more advanced playing. A variety of programs provide longevity, allowing educators to participate with students from grades 3-5 for three consecutive years. One development session for instructors is required prior to the program. At the end of the year, students play their recorders and sing with the Spokane Symphony at Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox.  

In 2017, the selected program, “The Orchestra Moves”, included Spokane area teachers and singers leading the singing and a high school drumline paying a surprise visit to close out the performance.  A over 1200 students will participate in the program.

Link Up: The Ochestra Moves Concerts

Concerts will be held at Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox on April 27 at 10:30 a.m. and 7 p.m.
