The Columbus Symphony Orchestra is proud to partner with Carnegie Hall's Weill Music Institute to present LINK UP: The Orchestra Sings! This highly-participatory program for students in grades 3-5 unites the classroom with the concert hall, giving students the opportunity to explore music through a year-long curriculum of classroom activities and then attend a culminating concert where they sing and play recorders with the orchestra from their seats. Teachers may choose from one of three program paths, Basic, Basic+, or Advanced, depending on the level of involvement they would like to have for their students. 

LINK UP TIMELINE:
January 22 - Concert workshop, 4:30pm Ohio Theatre
May 15 - Link Up concert, 10am SOLD OUT or 11:35am (limited tickets available), Ohio Theatre
