    Classical Kids

    This Sunday on Classical Kids we'll hear the music of Sergei Rachmaninov and a quick tour of some of the instruments of the orchestra with the Classical Cats!

    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.
