The ECSO reaches over 8,000 children in New London County each year through all of its education programs. This video shows the exciting Carnegie Hall Link Up program titled "The Orchestra Sings" which is a new format for the ECSO's Young People's Concerts. Students learn recorder and singing curriculum throughout the year to prepare them to perform with the orchestra from their seats on the day of the concert. Percussion students from the Interdistrict School for Arts and Communication (ISAAC) joined for the finale, a bi-lingual piece titled "Oye". To continue our commitment to engaging education content, we are performing Link Up: The Orchestra Moves next year!

Funding for this program was generously provided by the Community Foundation of Eastern Connecticut, Bodenwein Public Benevolent Foundation, and ECSO
