Welcome to the second day of Carnival of the Animals Week on Kids Commute from Classical IPR. This week is the first of a two part presentation of French composer Camille Saint-Saens musical suite, “Carnival of the Animals.” Leonard Bernstein is our guest host this week as we highlight the movements in this suite of whimsical compositions. Today is “two for Tuesday”, as we listen to “Hens and Roosters,” immediately followed by “Wild Donkeys.” After the music we’ll give you the first hint for this week’s Kids Commute Quizlet. Text us the correct answer and we’ll send you a Kids Commute Prize Pack. Thanks for listening to Kids Commute from Interlochen Public Radio!
