Kids Commute - Alexandre Desplat Week! Wednesday

Jan 9, 2019

"The Imitation Game" (2014)

Happy Wednesday, Kids Commuters! Hope you’re having a great time listening to music from award winning film composer Alexandre Desplat on Kids Commute from Interlochen Public Radio. We’re almost halfway through our weeklong adventure through Desplat’s most famous film scores. So far we’ve heard music from “The Queen,” and “The Fantastic Mr. Fox." Both of these films scores were nominated for Academy Awards for Best Original Score.

In today’s show, you’ll find out just how many films Alexandre Desplat has written music for, and we’ll also hear music he wrote for the 2014 movie, “The Imitation Game” directed by Morten Tyldum. All of that plus another hint to this week’s Quizlet. Text us the correct answer and we’ll ship you a Kids Commute prize pack. Good luck!
