Hi, Kids Commuters. Now is not the time to sit on a shelf. It’s ELF WEEK on Kids Commute from Interlochen Public Radio! People have been telling stories about elves for centuries, so we thought it would be fun to highlight some music inspired by elves. These creatures were first imagined in old German folklore, and since then, they’ve been useful characters in all kinds of stories. This week’s music features all kinds of elves: mystic, house elves, dancing elves, and silly elves. In addition to great music, we’ll also be giving away tickets to see “Elf: The Musical,” at Old Town Playhouse in Traverse City and "The Nutcracker Ballet" at Interlochen Center for the Arts. Thanks for listening to Kids Commute from Interlochen Public Radio.
