Spring has sprung, this week on Kids’ Commute! We will be welcoming spring with the music of Antonio Vivaldi, Ástor Piazzolla, and Johann Strauss. All these composers wrote specific, spring themed compositions, celebrating one of our most beloved seasons of the year. Are you ready to “spring” into spring?!

Kids' Commute Rossini Overture Week: William Tell

Apr 17, 2015

This week on Kids’ Commute, we are exploring the overtures of Gioachino Rossini! 

The Italian composer wrote some famous operas, sacred music, chamber music, songs, and other instrumental and piano pieces. Now just to remind you, the an overture is the first thing you hear before an opera, for instance. It gives you the musical sense of what you’re about to hear, often containing little themes from the music in the main opera.
