KIDS COMMUTE - Ragtime Week! Thursday

Feb 14, 2019

Thanks for listening to Ragtime Week on Kids Commute from Interlochen Public Radio. All week, we’re playing some of the best known compositions in ragtime music. Ragtime was a popular style of American music at the turn of the 20th century. We’ve played you some early ragtime compositions and given you great information about ragtime composers. Yesterday, we introduced you to one of the “big three” ragtime composers, James Scott. In today’s show, we listen to music composed by Joseph Lamb. Find out which famous district in New York City Mr. Lamb worked in. We’ll also tell you tell you about the re-discovery of his works. All of that, plus your final hint for the Kids Commute Quizlet. If you text us the correct answer, we’ll send you a Kids Commute Prize Pack. Thanks for listening to Kids Commute - classical music for kids from Interlochen Public Radio.
