    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.
