Carnegie Hall 'Links' Duquesne Symphony Orchestra and Area Students for Interactive Performance

More than 1,400 area elementary students from 37 Catholic schools in the Diocese of Pittsburgh will be both audience and music makers in a special interactive orchestra concert with the Duquesne University Symphony Orchestra and Carnegie Hall's Weill Music Institute (WMI) of New York City.

Duquesne University is one of only 10 schools nationwide (and the only school in Pennsylvania) selected to participate in the pilot, and its music students have worked with the young students over a series of months to help increase their performance, creativity and listening skills.

The students will take part in the concert by accompanying the Duquesne Symphony Orchestra on flute-like recorders and by singing. The performance will be the culmination of many months of classroom preparation by the students as part of Communities LinkUP!, a WMI pilot program through which Carnegie Hall shares its renowned educational expertise and resources with orchestras and school districts across the nation.

10 a.m. on Friday, March 18, 2005, Carnegie Hall, Oakland, Pa.
