More than 4,000 students from 65 area schools got the opportunity to play with the Omaha Symphony on Wednesday.
The students got a chance to play their soprano recorders. One of the students, fourth-grader Jack Cooper from Springville Elementary, wrote an original song, which the symphony played while the other kids joined in.
"My song is 'Beautiful Sun,' I wrote this piece 'cause I thought it would be cool and I thought it was pretty cool and I like the melody a lot. I think the symphony is going to play a little different arrangement, like they're gonna add stuff to it, but I think it will be awesome."
The concert was part of the Carnegie Hall Link-Up Program, designed to teach students to learn how to read music and play the recorder.
