Link Up

Link Up is a hands-on music curriculum for students in grades 3–5 that explores orchestral repertoire in the music classroom while preparing students to sing and play recorders or string instruments from their seats in a culminating St. Louis Symphony Orchestra Link Up concert at Powell Hall. If you are teaching recorder, singing, or beginning violin, this curriculum is a must!

Introduce your students to the orchestra by helping them get ready to become a part of it! Find out more by watching this short video from our partners at Carnegie Hall.

  • Participate in the ultimate summative assessment of student learning, the Link Up concert, where you and your students will perform along with the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra
