Hi Kids Commuters! Welcome to "Bernstein Week" on Kids Commute from Interlochen Public Radio. This week, we’re looking at the life and career of Leonard Bernstein, one of the most popular conductors of the 20th century. His expressive conducting style, his love for music education, and his ability to connect with people made Bernstein a household name.

Today, we highlight “Mambo” a popular selection from his most famous musical work, “West Side Story”. After the music, we’ll introduce a brand new Kids Commute Quizlet. Do you think you’ll get the answer without any hints? If you do, we’ll send you a Kids Commute Prize Pack! Thanks for listening to Kids Commute for Interlochen Public Radio.
