EPISODE 7 - The Lovely Sirens (Wednesday, September 13, 2017)

People didn't always think of mermaids as lovely underwater ladies who spent all day pearl hunting. The Ancient Greeks thought of them as monsters, called, "sirens." Sirens were very nice to look at, and had beautiful singing voices...but they lured sailors to wreck their ships on rocks. American composer Stacy Garrop wrote, "The Lovely Sirens," as part of her Mythology Symphony -  it's music that shows both sides of our monster mermaids - beautiful singing that ends in a terrible shipwreck!
