Interesting Instruments: The Clarinet
26:47Rebecca and Zara are back with more interesting instruments! This week we are learning all about the clarinet. And no one is better to give us the ins and outs of this member of the woodwind family (and a few of its cousins) than Kelly Sanchuk. Kelly is a multi-instrumentalist hailing from Saskatchewan. She is also one of The Lane School of Music’s fabulous instructors. She teaches us all about reeds, when kids can start clarinet lessons and how learning recorder at school is setting you up to be a skilled woodwind player.

The Hockey Sweater
20:17The Hockey Sweater is a Canadian children’s book by Roch Carrier. It tells the story of a boy in Quebec who gets the wrong jersey in the mail and is forced to play hockey with a group of Montreal Canadian’s fans, while repping the Toronto Maple Leafs. In February, The Toronto Symphony will be presenting this book in concert form. How cool is that? The conductor of this show, Trevor Wilson is here to tell us all about this marriage of sports and classical music. We chat about why this story resonates with Canadians, how a book becomes a concert and what to expect when you watch this musical hockey match on February 5th.
