    Classical Kids

    With everyone enjoying a visit from the Easter Bunny today, Classical Kids will enjoy a visit from The Runaway Bunny, while Bugs Bunny goes to the opera in the Rabbit of Seville.

    Sunday April 27th
    We'll wake up to a musical sunrise by Grieg this morning, and enjoy classical and traditional Irish music played on the harp. We'll also hear some different dances by some of the great composers, including a waltz by Joann Strauss II, a Spanish dance by Ravel and ballet music by Khachaturian!

    Sunday May 4th
    Beethoven took so long to write his fifth symphony that he finished an opera and two other symphonies while he worked on it! However it's remembered as one of his most famous works and we'll hear it on Sunday. We'll also sail the seas with music by Wagner, and we'll find out how Paddington Bear got his name!
