Fifth-gradeÂ violinists and violists are busy preparing for Carnegie Hall’s LinkUP! concert which will take place at the end of May.Â LinkUP! is a year-long curriculum for General Music and String Programs, culminating in an interactive concert in May.Â
This week we began putting the final touches on the LinkUP! theme song, “Come to Play” by Tom Cabaniss.Â The more weÂ play “Come to Play”, the more we enjoy the catchy melodies andÂ syncopated rhythms.
After winter break, we will begin to work on “In C” by Terry Riley.Â This piece will give the string players a rare opportunity to improvise using several short melodies.Filed under Uncategorized | Comment (1)
