Alexandre Desplat: "The Queen" 2006

Welcome back to Kids Commute from Interlochen Public Radio! Everybody at IPR hopes you had a fun holiday break. The Kids Commute team wanted a fun theme to help you set your “back to school” groove, so we chose to share with you film music by Oscar award winning film composer, Alexandre Desplat.

This week we’ll hear everything from music for royalty to musical sea creatures. Today we’ll hear Desplat’s music written for a driving queen for the 2006 film “The Queen”. We’ll also introduce a brand new quizlet. Text in the right answer and you’ll win yourself a Kids Commute prize pack!
