2021-22 Capstone Videos - With over an hour of content, here are videos to be shared with our school partners, and also serve to identify talented pathways for students. These will be inserted into a small end of year Give Lively Fundraiser, for instrument supplies.
Tune Up Philly Distanced Learning Capstone for 2019-2020 Season
To Our Partners: Thank you for your committed support. In lieu of the 10th Annual Festival Concert and Juries, we’ve elected a differentiated project and resources for our Site Leaders and Faculty to engage with TUP student families to preserve their space in the program and find a meaningful way to respond to our sudden school closures.
Whether through Narrative response, Instrumental Performance, or through Song, student families can participate in our Capstone Project. Partner musical staff are encouraged to submit a virtual performance as well! Our Faculty will record a Virtual rendition of John Legend’s “Ordinary People” – We feel that the chorus and sentiment allows us to show our Unity with a single project and song whose chorus reminds us to “take it slow” as we acknowledge we are all ordinary people.
We will want to synchronize our opportunities for collecting instruments as well in Early June.
To Our Student Families: We are devastated to not be able to end our year with our Saturday Orchestra program, our PYO Gala, and our TPAC Festival Concert. There are a few ways for student families to participate in order to retain their enrollment in Tune Up:
Faculty will distribute through our partners and on this link, our end of year Capstone Exams (PDF)
Included for students who have instruments and are able to practice with instruction, we have parts attached below. Your Teachers will advise you on how to participate and submit a video.
We have a telephone TUP Hotline that will be listed within the PDF Exams, and we want to hear your voices! Parents can help students submit their narrative replies, and to sing a chorus of the “Ordinary People” song for us to create a digital collage, and keepsake capstone for our season.
