Link Up, Carnegie Hall's music education program for grades 3–5 celebrates its 28th year with dozens of energetic and interactive children's concerts across the United States and abroad this spring, including eight performances in New York City over four days, May 21–24, in Carnegie Hall's Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage. The program and New York concerts are presented by Carnegie Hall's Weill Music Institute.
Approximately 16,000 students and teachers from the New York City area will attend and participate in an hour-long performance featuring the Orchestra of St. Luke's, conductor Rossen Milanov, and composer and host Thomas Cabaniss. Additionally, around 50 New York City school students will perform on stage with the professional musicians at each Link Up concert. In this year's program, The Orchestra Rocks, students explore rhythm and discover how composers play with elements of musical time, creating patterns of sound and silence that are expressive and exciting. The program will include music by Holst, Tchaikovsky, Carl Orff, Thomas Cabaniss, and Terry Riley.
Venue Description: One of the most famous performance spaces in the world, and where the biggest orchestras in the world play when they come to New York City. They also offer neighborhood concerts throughout the year, tours of the historic halls, music programming, festivals, and more.
