Link Up

Beginning our 18th year of school partnerships, the West Michigan Symphony looks forward joining with you and your school for the “Orchestra Sings” during the 2021-2022 school year. The West Michigan Symphony Link Up program (a nationally recognized curriculum by Carnegie Hall) brings music and melody to your classroom students in grades 3-5. Link Up draws on concert repertoire and culminates with students performing at the Frauenthal Theater in Muskegon on May 3, 2022.

Schools receive FREE: teacher professional development, teacher curriculum and online resources, student printable workbooks, Music Mentor in person or virtual classroom visits, and a highly interactive Link Up Concert on May 3, 2022. Students learn to read music, play the recorder, meet musicians and perform together at the WMS Link Up Concert.

For more information or to register your school for the Link Up program, please email Karen Vander Zanden at
