Today we'll hear his Grand Canyon Suite, which includes music written for a thunderstorm. We'll also hear some different dances by some of the great composers - a waltz by Johann Strauss II, a Spanish dance by Ravel and ballet music by Khachaturian!

Camille Saint-Saens wrote his Carnival of the Animals Suite just for fun, and today we'll meet some his very musical members of the animal kingdom. We'll also meet some singing frogs and cats, and enjoy some musical fireworks!
