UMKC Vocal Students Work With The Kansas City Symphony


Four Conservatory students Angela Schroder, alto, senior; Marit Evans, soprano, senior; Bryan Pinkall, tenor, doctoral student; and Chris Carr, baritone, master's student will work with the Kansas City Symphony in its new Link Up Education concerts, May 9 and 10, 11:30 a.m., May 10, 10 a.m.

The Kansas City Symphony joins Carnegie Hall's Link Up program which pairs orchestras across country with students in grades 3–5 at schools in their local communities to explore orchestral repertoire. Through a hands-on music curriculum, students in grades 3–5 discover how composers create musical movement using elements such as motif, melodic direction, steps and leaps, dynamics, and orchestration. Exploring a range of orchestral repertoire, students sing, play the recorder, compose, and perform in a culminating concert with the Kansas City Symphony in Helzberg Hall! Participating schools will receive curriculum guides featuring lessons on singing, playing the soprano recorder, reading and notating music, and composing and improvising music. Students will also be provided with soprano recorders free of charge.

Marit, Angela, and Bryan are Song Leaders.  Chris Carr is a baritone soloist.
