The Kenai Peninsula Orchestra will perform in a Link-Up Concert in Kenai on Saturday and Homer on Sunday.
In collaboration with Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute, the Kenai Peninsula Orchestra is participating in the Link-Up program during the 2012–2013 season. Link-Up pairs orchestras across the country with schools in their local communities, inviting them to learn about orchestral repertoire through a hands-on music curriculum.
Curriculum materials, provided free-of-charge, guide students in exploring music through a composer’s lens, and engages them in active music-making in the classroom.
The culmination of the program is a live performance in which students have the opportunity to sing and play the recorder or violin along with the Kenai Peninsula Orchestra. This performance often serves as students’ first concert experience and provides them with the opportunity to apply the musical concepts they have studied.
Kenai Peninsula Orchestra is one of 40 organizations from across the United States chosen for this program.
