Link Up: The Orchestra Sings
In partnership with the Carnegie Hall Weill Music Institute
Appropriate for Teachers & Students: 3rd – 5th grade
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, activities, and culminating interactive performance with the Amarillo Symphony, we will discover how the orchestra sings. Repertoire highlights include Beethoven’s Ode to Joy, Dvorak’s New World Symphony, and “Simple Gifts.”
Students will: sing or play the recorder with the Amarillo Symphony; analyze and interpret essential musical structures of melody and what makes it sing; connect with the orchestra and explore instruments, families, and orchestration; and develop their imaginative capacities and make personal connections to music.
