Kids Commute - Bicycle Week! Friday

May 3, 2019

Happy Friday, Kids Commuters!  We hope you’ve enjoyed Bicycle Week on Kids Commute from Interlochen Public Radio.  All week long, we’ve highlighted music composed about bikes as we celebrate a partnership with Norte, a Traverse City bicycling group.  We’ve heard all kinds of great music this week; rock music arranged for an orchestra, a song about a bicycle built for two, film music, and even a polka!  Today, we’re taking to the skies as we listen to “Bicycle Chase,” written by John Williams. This music was featured during a chase scene from director Stephen Spielberg’s 1982 film, “E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial.”  There was no Kids Commute Quizlet this week, so no need to worry about the answer! Thanks for joining us for Bicycle Week on Kids Commute from Interlochen Public Radio.
