Classical Kids

Classical Kids is a fun introduction to composers, musicians and instruments for younger listeners - and maybe some grownups too!

Sunday May 21st, 10am

Which of the great composers was put in jail when he tried to quit writing music? We'll find out on Sunday! We’ll also hear music written for dancing hours and minutes, in Ponchielli’s Dance of the Hours.

Sunday May 28th, 10am

Schubert’s father was a teacher and wanted young Franz to teach too, but the young composer was more interested in writing music than teaching! However he did write his first symphony for his school orchestra, and we’ll hear it on this week’s Classical Kids. We'll also hear the story of The Firebird with music by Stravinsky,
