    Classical Kids

    As Poulenc was sitting at his piano one day, a little girl handed him a story book and asked him to play it-and he did-so we'll hear his Babar the Elephant this Sunday!

    Sunday August 31st
    We'll take an un-seasonal listen to Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker on Sunday, including the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy and the Dance of the Reed Flutes. We'll also enjoy to music performed by an orchestra of brass instruments, string instruments and a ukulele orchestra!

    Sunday September 7th
    Schubert’s father was a teacher and wanted young Franz to teach too, but the young composer was more interested in writing music! 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 music written for dancing hours and minutes, in Ponchielli’s Dance of the Hours.
