    Classical Kids

    We've got the best, worst music this week including a march by Charles Ives written for a very under-rehearsed orchestra. We'll also explore Beethoven's important Eroica Symphony.

    Sunday September 21st
    They say musical talent runs in the family, so today we'll hear music by the fathers and sons from the Mozart and Strauss families, and a duet performed by the famous Labeque sisters! We'll also take a listen to music written for The Seasons by Tchaikovsky, including a song for Autumn. 

    Sunday September 28th
    The Italian composer Jean-Baptiste Lully was a famous composer who studied the guitar, violin, keyboard and was also a famous dancer! We'll hear his music on Sunday, as well as pieces written by George Gershwin after a holiday in Cuba and by Mendelssohn after a trip to Scotland.
