  • 5th Graders Visit Lansing Symphony

    Ralya and Murphy 5th graders took a field trip to the Wharton Center to hear the Lansing Symphony Orchestra perform "The Orchestra Swings". Students were able to study swing and learn a few tunes to sing along with during the performance in their music classes prior to attending. The Lansing Symphony, along with many other symphonies nationwide, takes part in Carnegie Hall's "Link Up" program. This program links curriculum and orchestral performance experiences to elementary school students each year. We look forward to taking part in "The Orchestra Sings" concert next year!
