    Thanks so much to Éilis Smith aged 5 and Nóra Smith aged 7 from Manorhamilton in Co. Leitrim, who drew these super pictures of cowgirls inspired by Aaron Copland's Rodeo. Why not listen to this week's programme and see what pictures you come up with?

    Classical Kids

    Today we'll hear one of the best, worst singers ever, who became famous for her poor voice! We'll also pick up a piccolo plus music by two composers named Sergei!

    Sunday March 1st
    Classical Kids celebrates the first day of Spring with part of Vivaldi's Four Seasons describing springtime rain, birds singing and a happy dance. We'll also hear music written especially for different times of the day, starting with an energetic sunrise by Ferde Grofe and finishing with a beautiful nocturne by John Field.

    Sunday March 8th
    The Russian composer Dmitri Kabalevsky loved writing music for children, and on Sunday’s Classical Kids we’ll hear his children’s piano pieces and his songs performed by a children’s choir. We’ll also hear instruments from around the world, including bagpipes from Scotland, a didgeridoo from Australia and the cimbalom from Hungary.
