Students, symphony unite in Link Up Concert

By NEMS Daily Journal

TUPELO – Tupelo elementary school students will perform a concert with the Tupelo Symphony Orchestra today.
The concert was made possible by TSO’s partnership with Carnegie Hall’s Link Up program, which teaches all students the basics of music and how to play an instrument. The students have been studying from the Link Up program this year in preparation for the concert at the Civic Auditorium on Friday.
Fifth-graders will play recorders, second-graders will sing, and they’ll all perform with the Tupelo Symphony Orchestra, Itawamba Community College’s drumline and famous violinist Alexander Markov.
Markov is performing with the symphony on Saturday at a concert at the Link Centre.
The Link Up concert is open to students only.
