"The Orchestra Rocks"


One universal element of music is rhythm. Composers and musicians play with elements of musical time, creating patterns of sound and silence that are expressive and exciting. A consistent groove can unite musicians, singers, and audiences in an experience of listening and performing together. Through the LinkUp repertoire, hands-on activities, and a culminating interactive performance with a professional orchestra, we will discover how "the orchestra rocks!"
