Kids Commute - Alma Deutscher Week!

One of our goals is to keep you informed on what’s new in classical music, and the Kids Commute team is really excited to bring you Alma Deutscher Week on Kids Commute from Interlochen Public Radio! Alma is a child prodigy, who not only plays piano and violin, but has also been composing since she was four years old. We’ll tell you all about her background, her philosophies and method of composing, and introduce you to her music. As always, we’ll give you a hint to the Kids Commute Quizlet so you can win a Kids Commute Prize Pack. Thanks for listening to Kids Commute from Interlochen Public Radio - your source for music appreciation for kids.
