Kids Commute - Women Composers Week! Tuesday

Apr 17, 2018

Women Composer's Week! Today, American composer Florence Price (1887-1953).

Welcome to Day Two of WOMEN COMPOSERS WEEK on IPR's Kids Commute!

This week, we're celebrating the work of women composers, many of whom lived in a time when composing music was considered a job for men.

Today, we'll hear the third movement from the Symphony in E minor by Florence Price. Keep your ears open for the slide whistle - not something you'd necessarily imagine hearing in a symphony!

Tuesday, April 17 2018 (Ep. 136)
