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

Hundreds of elementary students from 57 Pittsburgh Catholic Diocese and Pittsburgh city schools 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 of New York City.

Duquesne University is one of only nine schools nationwide—and the only school in Pennsylvania—selected to participate in the program, and its music students have worked with the young students for months to help increase their performance, creativity and listening skills.

The fourth- through sixth-graders will participate in the concert, accompanying the Duquesne Symphony Orchestra on flute-like recorders and singing. The performance culminates many months of classroom preparation by the students as part of Communities LinkUP!, an initiative that shares Carnegie Hall’s renowned educational expertise and resources with orchestras and school districts across the nation.

*Approximately 1,300 are expected at each of the two performances.

WHEN: Friday, March 17, 2006 at 10 a.m. and 12 p.m.

WHERE: Carnegie Hall, Oakland, 4400 Forbes Ave., Pittsburgh, Pa.
