BARNSTABLE – Nearly 300 students from seven schools across Cape Cod will gather at Cape Cod Community College’s Tilden Arts Center later this month for a unique and interactive musical experience.

Through Carnegie Hall’s Link Up program facilitated by the Cape Conservatory, children will actually take part in a Cape Symphony concert under the direction of conductor and artistic director Jung-Ho Pak.

The students will sing and play recorder from their seats in the audience.

The Link Up concert is April 28 at 1 p.m.

Although the concert is not open to the public, it serves an important purpose by giving young students, mainly in grades 3 through 5, the experience of being part of an orchestra and to inspire them to sing or take up an instrument.

Highlights of the concert include Gershwin’s “I got Rhythm” variations, Ellington’s “It Don’t Mean a Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing),” and Bernstein’s “Mambo” from West Side Story.

Through the repertoire, students investigate concepts of rhythm, form, improve and communication.
