MUSIC TELLS A STORY
Music and literature are closely aligned. This fun, interactive full orchestra concert shows how music can tell a story and is often comprised of the same elements: plot, characters, setting, and dramatic events. This concert ties into the language curriculum.

THE ORCHESTRA SINGS
A NEW programme from Carnegie Hall for Grades 4 - 6
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.
A yearlong curriculum for music classrooms focusing on how melodies work. Draws on concert repertoire and culminates with students performing at Carnegie Hall's Stern Auditorium or at a local hall.
Includes basic soprano recorder techniques and repertoire selections, plus listening, analysis, performance, creative projects, and experiential activities. Composer Thomas Cabaniss guides the exploration.
