Link Up The Orchestra Moves, returns to Omaha from Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute with an immersive recorder curriculum featuring: "The Blue Danube," "Toreador" from Carmen, The Marriage of Figaro and more! Don't miss this revamped experience!
By any definition, music moves. As organized sound, music moves through time. We can perceive music as moving through space from high to love, filling the spaces in between with harmonies, timbres, and textures. Music moves us, evoking a full range of emotional responses, and music compels us to move our bodies and create dance. Through the Link Up repertoire, hands-on activities, and a culminating interactive performance with a professional orchestra, we will discover all the interwoven ways that the orchestra moves.
