    In the overture to his opera William Tell, Rossini painted a picture of a Summer storm and the galloping horses of the Swiss army! We'll hear it on Sunday and we'll visit a farm.

    Sunday September 21st
    They say musical talent runs in the family, so today we'll hear music by the fathers and sons from the Mozart and Strauss families, and a duet performed by the famous Labeque sisters! We'll also take a listen to music written for The Seasons by Tchaikovsky, including a song for Autumn. 

    Sunday September 28th
    The Italian composer Jean-Baptiste Lully was a famous composer who studied the guitar, violin, keyboard and was also a famous dancer! We'll hear his music on Sunday, as well as pieces written by George Gershwin after a holiday in Cuba and by Mendelssohn after a trip to Scotland.
