    Music Education Program Culminates with

    Interactive Orchestra Concerts for Students Nationwide in Spring 2019


    Holland Symphony Performs Link Up Concert in Jack H. Miller Center For Musical Arts


    Monday, March 25, 2019


    HOLLAND{ In collaboration with Carnegie Hall Holland Symphony is participating in Link Up The Orchestra Sings, a music education program provided by Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute (WMI), during the 2018–2019 season.  Over 1500 4th grade students participating in Link Up will attend a culminating concert on Monday, March 25, 2019 at Jack H. Miller Performance Center where they sing and play the recorder with the orchestra from their seats. This performance often serves as students’ first concert experience and provides them with the opportunity to apply the musical concepts they have studied.  This program has been supported in part by a three-year funding request from the Community Foundation of the Holland Zeeland Area, The Westerman Foundation, and our Educational Outreach Partner, Hope College.


    For more than 30 years, Link Up has paired orchestras with students in grades 3–5 at schools in their local communities to explore orchestral repertoire and fundamental musical skills, including creative work and composition, through a hands-on music curriculum. Link Up addresses the urgent need for music instruction and resources by providing a free, high quality, year-long curriculum that teachers can implement, along with classroom materials, online video and audio resources, and the professional development and support necessary to make the program an engaging experience for students.


    Holland Symphony Orchestra is one of more than 110 national and international organizations chosen for this program.  Since 2003, Carnegie Hall has partnered with professional, community, and university orchestras across the US and around the world to support their existing education programs and strengthen their partnerships with local schools. In 2018–2019, Link Up will partner with sites in the US, as well as in Brazil, Canada, Spain, Kenya, and Japan, to serve more than 450,000 students and teachers globally.
