In partnership with Carnegie Hall

“Swing” is a distinctive rhythmic feel, a musical era dominated by big-band jazz, a style of dance that grew alongside the music. Swing is also that elusive, but unmistakable, feeling that results when musicians are deeply tuned into each other and playing in sync. Though swing is characteristically associated with jazz, an orchestra can also swing. We will explore the elements that contribute to that magical moment when the Naples Philharmonic and the Naples Philharmonic Youth Jazz Orchestra start to swing!

About LinkUp

Local students “link up” with Carnegie Hall and the Naples Philharmonic. This partnership unites the classroom with the concert hall and invites students to learn about the orchestra by becoming a part of it themselves. Students learn to play an instrument in their classroom and then perform with the Naples Philharmonic and the Naples Philharmonic Youth Jazz Orchestra.
