Central Ohio Symphony Presents Carnegie Hall’s “Link Up” Music Education Program for Delaware County Elementary Students

In collaboration with Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute (WMI), the Central Ohio Symphony (Symphony) will perform “The Orchestra Sings” to students in the Delaware City, Buckeye Valley, and St. Mary schools, as well as the Village Academy. The concert will take place on May 16 at 12:30 pm in Ohio Wesleyan University’s Gray Chapel in Delaware. The concert will be conducted by guest conductor John Deliman and the host will be Kristen Basore. Hayes High School Student Adryán Rojas will be featured on the violin. Students from the Hayes music program will be assistant hosts and several will be performing a Latin drum ensemble coordinated by teacher Rolf Remlinger.

Executive Director Warren W. Hyer is looking forward to the event. “We started exploring bringing the Carnegie Hall program, “Link Up,” to Delaware over two years ago at the invitation of Carnegie Hall. This concert will be an exciting live performance in which the students will also be musicians, singing and playing their recorders along with the orchestra.”

Link Up is a highly participatory program that pairs orchestras across the country with schools in their local communities, inviting students to learn about orchestral repertoire through a yearlong, hands-on music curriculum. Utilizing curriculum materials provided free of charge by WMI, teachers guide students in exploring music through a composer’s lens, with students participating in active music making in the classroom, performing repertoire on recorder or voice, and taking part in creative work such as composing their own pieces inspired by the orchestral music they have studied.

The Central Ohio Symphony has received funding for Link Up from the Ohio Arts Council, the Symphony’s operating fund and a small fee from each school. In addition to those schools attending, the Symphony provided teacher and student workbooks to every 4th grade student and classroom in the Olentangy Local School District.

Link Up’s national partnerships grew out of the program’s ongoing work with New York City schools, through which Carnegie Hall has engaged hundreds of thousands of students in musical learning since its inception in 1985. This year, the Symphony is one of over 90 symphonies nationwide participating in the program.

The Central Ohio Symphony is in its 38th season producing a four concert subscription series in Delaware, a summer music festival, the July 4th concert, and numerous educational and community engagement activities for central Ohio residents. The Symphony serves more than 18,000 each year. This year marks the first time the Symphony has partnered with Carnegie Hall for Link Up.

With a book by Tony and Academy Award-nominee Douglas McGrath, direction by Marc Bruni, and choreography by Josh Prince, Beautiful features a stunning array of beloved songs written by Gerry Goffin/Carole King and Barry Mann/Cynthia Weil. The show opened on Broadway at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre (125 West 43 Street) in January 2014, where it has since broken all box office records and recently became the highest-grossing production in the theatre’s history.

The Original Broadway Cast Recording of Beautiful – The Carole King Musical (Ghostlight Records), won the 2015 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album and is available on CD, digitally, and on vinyl. Beautiful opened in London at the Aldwych Theatre in February 2015, and launched its first national tour in September 2015.

Long before she was Carole King, chart-topping music legend, she was Carol Klein, Brooklyn girl with passion and chutzpah. She fought her way into the record business as a teenager, and by the time she reached her twenties, had the husband of her dreams and a flourishing career writing hits for the biggest acts in rock ‘n’ roll. But it wasn’t until her personal life began to crack that she finally managed to find her true voice. Beautiful tells the inspiring true story of King’s remarkable rise to stardom from being part of a hit songwriting team with her husband Gerry Goffin to her relationship with fellow writers and best friends Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann to becoming one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history. Along the way, she made more than beautiful music. She wrote the soundtrack to a generation. Beautiful features a stunning array of beloved songs written by Gerry Goffin/Carole King and Barry Mann/Cynthia Weil including “I Feel The Earth Move,” “One Fine Day,” “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,” “You’ve Got A Friend,” and the title song.

The creative team of Beautiful also includes Derek McLane (Set Design), Alejo Vietti (Costume Design), Peter Kaczorowski (Lighting Design), Brian Ronan (Sound Design), Charles G. LaPointe (Wig and Hair Design), Steve Sidwell (Orchestrations and Music Arrangements), Jason Howland (Music Supervision), and John Miller (Music Coordination).

Leve/Elaine Krauss, Terry Schnuck, Orin Wolf, Patty Baker/Good Productions, Roger Faxon, Larry Magid, Kit Seidel, Lawrence S.
