21-22 Link Up: The Orchestra Moves
Link Up is an interactive music experience for grade 3-6 students in Regina and southern Saskatchewan. Students learn songs to sing and play on recorder throughout the winter semester culminating in an interactive concert at the Conexus Arts Centre with the RSO! More than 3,000 students and teachers from five school divisions participate each year, many experiencing a live orchestra for the first time!
Link Up is offered by the RSO in partnership with Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute in New York City. Since 2003 Carnegie Hall has been supporting orchestras worldwide to present Link Up by providing high quality resources, professional development, music, and concert programs. Link Up includes 4 different concerts which are rotated each year:
1. Link Up: The Orchestra Moves
2. Link Up: The Orchestra Sings
3. Link Up: The Orchestra Rocks
4. Link Up: The Orchestra Swings
The RSO will perform The Orchestra Moves in the 2021—2022 season.
In the Fall of 2019 Elder Gordon Favel, from the Kawacatoose First Nation Reserve, gifted the song pe-wapan (Coming of Dawn), to the Regina Symphony Orchestra and community to sing during the May 2020 Link Up concert. Sadly, the May 2020 concert was canceled but we are excited to include pe-wapan (coming of dawn) in the May 6th2022 concert! Click here for teaching materials and video.
