What Our Partners Are Saying... The Link Up program is quite fantastic, and I came back completely revitalized, re-energized, and re-dedicated to the importance and significance of arts education within our school systems. Mississippi Arts Commission I absolutely love the program and feel it has pushed me to have my students perform at a much higher level. Link Up is really a great opportunity for the kids in this area to learn recorder skills and to become familiar with our concert hall and symphony. Omaha Symphony
