What Is Link Up?

Link Up is a full-year music program in which third- through fifth-grade students partner with Sacramento Philharmonic musicians in an interactive music education curriculum. Students then perform alongside Sacramento Philharmonic musicians at the Community Center Theater.  

Carnegie Hall has developed four Link Up programs:

The songs and hands-on music curriculum contained in these programs teach about the different elements of music, orchestral repertoire, and instruments.  At no cost to the orchestra, Carnegie Hall provides program materials, including teacher guides, student materials, concert scripts, and concert visuals, smartly designed to engage students and teachers in musical learning and exploration.

The Sacramento Philharmonic recruits the partner schools, raises funds to provide instruments for qualifying schools, and produces the final culminating concert(s). Link Up 2018 will be our eighth year as a National Link Up partner with the Carnegie Hall, Weill Music Institute.
