Welcome to the last day of BAND WEEK on IPR's Kids Commute!

This week, we've been learning all about Band music from Interlochen Arts Academy's Band Conductor, Dr. Matthew Schlomer.

Thanks so much to Matt for spending the week with us!

Today, BAND WEEK goes out with a bang...or, should we say, a crunch! This is a crazy, silly work by American composer Eric Whitacre (known mostly for his choral work, but boy, does he have fun with a band!)
