Kids Commute Story Challenge: Vianne Confronts the Comte

Apr 23, 2020

Be a part of our Story Challenge! Art shown here is by Aspen Clayton, age 10, of Downers Grove, Illinois!

The Kids Commute Story Challenge continues! Recently, we asked you to come up with short stories and art inspired by "The New Lobby Boy" by composer Alexandre Desplat. Now, we have a new piece of music for you to play with. Please give a listen to "Vianne Confronts the Comte" by Rachel Portman, from the movie "Chocolat" and write a short story to go with it (the music is 1 minute and 22 seconds long). We'll pick our favorite stories to be voiced by Interlochen Arts Academy Theatre students and create a version of your story to go on the air!

"Vianne Confronts the Comte" inspired 10-year-old Aspen Clayton from Downers Grove, IL to create this new piece of forest-themed art for us. Thanks, Aspen!

If you're not the storytelling type, draw us a picture inspired by the music, and we'll post it on our site.

We can't wait to see what you create!
