What were you doing in third grade?

Carnegie Hall's Link Up concert THE ORCHESTRA SINGS with our very special guest musicians from Broad View Elementary, Oak Harbor Elementary, Hillcrest Elementary, Crescent Harbor Elementary and Olympic View Elementary.


What were you doing in third grade?

It's safe to say that most of our email newsletter readers are not in elementary school at present, so we thought we would share with you one of our favorite events that you help support.

On May 21st, we joined forces with 600 third grade students from the Oak Harbor School District for our third annual Link Up program. This amazing program "links up" Carnegie Hall's education wing, Saratoga Orchestra and local schools with a curriculum designed to teach students the basics of singing, recorder playing and movement. The culmination is a highly interactive performance that leaves smiles on the faces of all the participants. 








Because of your continued support, Saratoga Orchestra has become a integral resource in the Whidbey Island community to enhance the educational opportunities for our next generation.

I’ve always loved to fly. I grew up in a family of pilots – my dad was a bush pilot in Alaska and his brother, my uncle Don, retired as a 747 pilot. They built kit planes growing up, and I inherited that same fascination with flying.

Winter is just around the corner, and it’s time to think about cold weather safety; specifically hypothermia. Hypothermia is a dangerous drop in body temperature, usually caused by prolonged exposure to cold temperatures.
