Click on the Bridge Session names below for curriculum materials with activities, resources and lesson ideas to continue exploring themes in your own classrooms. Some curriculum materials are still under development and will be added in the future.



Rhythm & Percussion Sessions
Three percussion-themed sessions explore instruments from around the world, connect rhythms to language and the spoken word, and look at the evolution of movement and rhythms across cultures. The sessions work equally well in sequence or as one-off programs.

Classical Connections Sessions

In collaboration with the Philadelphia Orchestra’s School Partnership Program, we pair classical musicians with other artists from across the musical spectrum to introduce students to the fundamentals of music. Each fall we create five new sessions and then repeat our favorites throughout the year. Curriculum resources coming soon!

  • Building Blocks of Music
  • Dancing Vibrations
  • And more!

Special Sessions with LiveConnections Presents Artists

LiveConnections Presents concert series bring together innovative classical musicians with artists from other styles and disciplines to expand the boundaries of classical music. Each season, select artists share their musical collaborations and creative processes with students in special themed Bridge Sessions.
