Kids Commute - SATB Week! Tuesday

Altos' Lament

  Welcome back to SATB Week on Kids Commute from Interlochen Public Radio.  Do you know what SATB means? Each day this week, we’ll decode one of the letters in this musical abbreviation.  Yesterday, we found out what ‘S’ stands for and listened to “The Doll Song,” from the opera, “Tales of Hoffman,” composed by Jacques Offenbach.  Today, guest host Lynne Church decodes the letter ‘A’ before we hear a funny song written by Interlochen alumna Marcy Heisler. After hearing “Altos' Lament,” maybe we’ll all have a little more sympathy for the fact that altos rarely get to sing the melody.  After the music, you’ll get 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.
