A Schaefer Center Presents and APPlause! K-12 Performing Arts Series event
In partnership with Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute, the Western Piedmont Symphony brings Link Up: The Orchestra Sings to the Schaefer Center for the Performing Arts for a live performance for family audiences, an extension of the APPlause! K-12 Performing Arts Series.
Carnegie Hall’s Link Up program introduces elementary age students to the orchestra by helping them to become a part of it. Students all over the country and around the world come together with their local orchestras to learn about, listen to, and perform great music.
Melody 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.
Concert repertoire includes: “Come to Play,” Finale from The Firebird Suite, “New World Symphony,” “Ode to Joy,” “Oye,” “Simple Gifts,” “To Make Words Sing” and “Variations on a Shaker Melody” from Appalachian Spring.
