Today – the day of the originally planned Link Up Concert – enjoy a brief video excerpt from the 2018 PMF Link Up Concert at Sapporo Concert Hall Kitara!
What is the Link Up Concert? It's the longest-running school program of Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute (WMI), providing opportunities for its participants in grades 3-5 to join the orchestra by teaching them to sing and play an instrument in the classroom.
The PMF Link Up Concert is based on the WMI program, provided to Sapporo City 6th graders.
