Welcome to Carnival of the Animals Week on Kids Commute from Interlochen Public Radio!

This week, we’re listening to music by French composer Camille Saint-Saens written in order to cheer himself up after a terrible concert tour in Germany.

Kids Commute host Kate Botello narrates the performance by the Interlochen Arts Academy orchestra conducted by Leslie Dunner. We've got a new Quizlet for you this week, too!

Tune in Monday through Friday at 7:40 a.m. or listen any time at the links below.

If you'd like to watch our "Carnival of the Animals" performance, you can see it on Interlochen's website by clicking: https://www.interlochen.org/media/archived-webcast-music-spotlight-youth-11-19-20 . Our piece starts at about 10:30 - but all the performances are nifty!

This week's MAYA MIX contains lots of different versions of "Carnival of the Animals." We have a lively instrumental version by the Boston Pops, another narrated by Leonard Bernstein, a re-imagining of the music by John Morris Russell, and a few individual movements performed by the talented kids of the Kanneh-Mason family!
