Kids Commute - Dolly Week! Tuesday

Jan 22, 2019

Dolly's mother, Emma Bardac

Welcome back to Kids Commute from Interlochen Public Radio. The Kids Commute Team hopes you had a good Monday and that you’re ready to have a fantastic Tuesday! Yesterday, we introduced our new theme, “Dolly Week” based on a six movement suite of music composed between 1893 and 1896 by French composer Gabriel Fauré.

In Monday’s show, we listened to the first movement of the suite. Today, we highlight the second movement, "Mi-a-ou." It sounds like it was written for a cat, but it wasn’t a cat at all. Curious? Listen to today’s show and get the answer to the question, "what (or who) is Mi-a-ou"?
