It’s good to have you back for day two of Puppet Week on Kids Commute from Interlochen Public Radio. This week, we’re enjoying music written about puppets. Yesterday we shared “Loutky” by Bohuslav Martinu, and introduced you to a new Kids Commute Quizlet. Did you know the correct answer? If you didn’t get it yesterday, don’t worry. We’ll give you a hint in today’s episode.


Today, we get to hear “Fantoches (Puppets) - Fêtes Galantes (Gallant Parties)”, written by French composer Claude Debussy. We’ll also learn about characters in puppet shows. And, by the way, we’ll reveal to you what a Scaramouche is. It might help you understand lyrics from the popular rock band Queen. Join us for Kids Commute - music appreciation for kids from Interlochen Public Radio!
