Classics For Kids and HOP Radio http://mtpr.org/post/classics-kids-and-hop-radio <p>Today on the Pea Green Boat, Naomi Lewin, host of Classics for Kids, will talk about musical fantasies. Originally, a musical fantasy was a piece that instrumentalists made up as they went along. Eventually, fantasies evolved into pieces that composers built out of various melodies they liked -- like the Scottish folk tunes that Max Bruch put into his Scottish Fantasy for violin and orchestra.</p> Fri, 17 Jan 2014 13:00:00 +0000 Annie Garde 13758 at http://mtpr.org Classics For Kids and HOP Radio This week on the Pea Green Boat 9/23-9/27 http://mtpr.org/post/week-pea-green-boat-923-927 <p>Hi everybody,</p><p>On the Pea Green Boat today, Braden came over from the Missoula Public Library and read three good books.
