  • 1Hello, teachers!As the Associate Conductor of the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, I would like

    to extend an invitation to the 2013.14 Concerts for Schools. Since joining the

    Milwaukee Symphony in 2011, I have conducted concerts not only in Milwaukee,

    but also in Fish Creek, Marinette, West Bend, Ripon and throughout Wisconsin. I am

    enjoying the chance to explore our home state and getting to know the wonderful

    people who live here.

    I am so pleased to play an active role in our orchestras educational programs again

    next year. One concert for which I am especially eager is Link Up The Orchestra Sings.

    Link Up is a program of Carnegie Halls Weill Music Institute that pairs orchestras

    across the country with students in grades 3-5 at schools in their local communities

    to explore orchestral repertoire through a year-long hands-on music curriculum.

    Students will get to sing and perform in the culminating concert!

    Weve got exciting programs in store for students at all grade levels next season.

    Our two-part Youth Series, Orchestral Colors, explores how composers can use the

    colors within an orchestra to create a variety of sounds and images. Within this series,

    Colors of Wisconsin is inspired by my travels around this state, while Symphonic

    Palette takes a deeper look at the connections between art and music. We will go on

    a symphonic safari in Music for Me! and our Teen Series features favorite Romantic

    works, Faurs Requiem and Prokofievs Romeo and Juliet.

    This brochure has more information about our 2013.14 Concerts for Schools, as

    well as ticket information and registration information to ensure that your students

    will be in our audience. As conductor Leopold Stokowski said, A painter paints his

    pictures on canvas, but musicians paint their pictures on silence. I look forward to

    sharing our musical pictures with you and your students next season.

    In 2013.14, the Milwaukee Symphony will partner with Carnegie Halls Weill Music Institute to bring the Link Up program to our community. Link Up pairs orchestras across the country with students in grades 35 at schools in their local communities to explore orchestral repertoire through a year-long hands-on music curriculum. Composers and musicians create melodies, which can be sung or played on instruments. When an orchestra plays these melodies, the orchestra sings. Students explore melody in a range of colorful orchestral repertoire, sing, play the recorder or violin, compose and perform in a culminating concert!
