Welcome to Puppet Week on Kids Commute - music appreciation for kids from Interlochen Public Radio! Join us as we listen through music written for and about puppets. This week we’ll highlight fun compositions by Charles Gounod, Igor Stravinsky, and more! Today’s musical selection is “Loutky” or “Puppets”, composed by Czechoslovakian composer, Bohuslav Martinu.
