Kids Commute: Bug week!

All this week, we'll bring you the buzz about classical music inspired by bugs!

Hear pieces about bumblebees, fireflies, ants, flies and butterflies.

Get buggy with us Monday through Friday at 7:40 a.m. or 3:20 p.m.

Kids Commute - BUG WEEK! Monday: Flight of the Bumblebee (Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov)
Isata Kanneh-Mason, piano
Kids Commute - BUG WEEK! Tuesday: Fireflies (Amy Beach)
Alan Feinberg, piano
Kids Commute - BUG WEEK! Wednesday: Army Ants (Roger Cichy, from "Bugs")
University of St. Thomas Wind Ensemble/Matthew George
Kids Commute - BUG WEEK! Thursday: Butterflying (Elena Kats-Chernin)
Tamara-Anna Cislowska, piano

pssst...a bonus Quizlet hint from your pal Kate - do NOT take your answer from the otherwise wonderful book "The Hungry Hungry Caterpillar" - the word used to describe the shell in the book is for moths, not butterflies! We promise - we looked it up in a bunch of places.

Kids Commute - BUG WEEK! Friday: Fly Duet (from "Orpheus in the Underworld" by Jacques Offenbach)
June Bronhill and Eric Shilling/Sadler's Wells Orchestra
