Kids Commute - Spider Snack Week! Monday

Jan 14, 2019

Albert Roussel's ballet "The Spider's Feast" Part 1

Happy Monday, Kids Commuters! It’s a whole new week and a whole new theme for Kids Commute from Interlochen Public Radio. We’re really going to “bug” you this week because this week’s theme is Spider Snack Week! We’ll be listening to highlights from a creepy crawly ballet composed by French composer Albert Roussel titled, “Le Festin de l'araignée”, or “The Spider’s Feast”.

Roussel shrinks us down to bug size so we can watch a day in the life of a spider in a garden, spinning its web, waiting for something tasty to climb into its web. Unfortunately, we won’t have time to hear the entire ballet, but lucky for you, the Kids Commute team has chosen the best parts for you to digest. In today’s show, we’ll hear music that illustrates the spider spinning its web and watching some ants dragging a rose petal. And we wouldn’t dream of forgetting to give you a new quizlet - text us the correct answer and we’ll send you a Kids Commute prize pack!
