On March 4, 2016, more than 2,100 local students in third through fifth grades performed in concert with members of the Acadiana Symphony Orchestra.
The students, all in third through fifth grades, performed with the Acadiana Symphony Orchestra at
the Heymann Performing Arts Center.
The show was part of Link Up, a national program that pairs orchestras with local schools. Participating students learn about orchestral repertoire through a yearlong, hands-on music curriculum.
