The Colorado Springs Philharmonic kids season is getting a boost from Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute with the program Link Up.
From the philharmonic’s press release:
“Link Up is a highly participatory program where students learn about orchestral repertoire through a yearlong, hands-on music curriculum. Utilizing free materials provided by WMI, the Philharmonic will provide teacher training and support to guide students in exploring music through a composer’s lens, with students participating in music-making in the classroom; performing on recorder, violin, voice, or body percussion; and taking part in creative work, such as composing their own pieces inspired by the music they have studied.”
During an interactive Philharmonic Kids performance on April 2, 2015, kids are encouraged to sing and either play recorder or another instrument along with the philharmonic from their seats at the Pikes Peak Center.
