Happy Friday, Kids Commuters - and happy summer!!! This is the last daily broadcast of Kids Commute for this school year! Don't worry, though - we'll be launching our Summer Listening Program on June 18, with music, Quizlets and prizes - ending with an ice cream party! Watch this space for updates!
Thanks so much for spending your school year with us - and now it's time to get excited for summer! This week we've been hearing music all about this sunny season. Today, though, we're doing something a little different. Today, we're hearing music that expresses the happiness of summer - and the end of school!
We'll listen to German composer Ludwig van Beethoven's iconic, "Ode to Joy," from his Ninth Symphony. It's an ode to the wonderful feeling of joy itself, and to brotherly love.
Big love to all of you, and to all the music teachers out there!
