    Sunday November 29th

    Grieg's Lyric Pieces are a set of 66 short piano pieces with fun names such as Elves Dance, Once Upon a Time and Grandmother's Minuet. We'll hear some of these piano pieces today and we'll hear music Grieg write for piano and orchestra, with part of his famous Piano Concerto. We'll also meet some of our favourite musical creatures in Saint-Saens Carnival of the Animals.

    Sunday December 6th

    Wrap up nice and warm, as we hear music written for snow and ice this morning. We'll enjoy the Skater's Waltz by Waldteufel, and we'll hear music written for dancing snowflakes by Tchaikovsky. We'll also hear some favourite Disney songs, but performed as if they had been written by Mozart, Rachmaninov and Prokofiev.
