About the event
The Carnegie Hall Weill Institute of Music’s “Link Up” program is an internationally acclaimed education program that allows students to connect through music and perform with a symphony orchestra. This is the ninth consecutive year that the TBSO has participated in “Link Up.” For 2021-2022, Thunder Bay’s Grades 4-6 students have the opportunity to participate in the ‘The Orchestra Swings” program.
“Swing” is many things. It’s a distinctive rhythmic feel; a musical era dominated by big band jazz; a style of dance that grew alongside the music; and that elusive but unmistakable feeling that results when musicians are deeply tuned into each other and playing in sync, or “in the pocket.” Though swing is characteristic of jazz, an orchestra can also swing. Through the Link Up repertoire, hands-on activities, and a culminating interactive performance with the Thunder Bay Symphony Orchestra and jazz ensemble, we will explore the elements that contribute to that magical moment when the orchestra starts to swing.
