Looking for an engaging way to supplement your child’s home-schooling experience.
Classic 107.3, “The Voice for the Arts in St. Louis,” has announced a new episode in its “Musical Ancestries” program for school-aged children.
The episode “Central America” debuts at 10 a.m. on April 25 following “Classics 4 Kids,” the station’s weekly show that introduces children to great works of classical music. Musical Ancestries is designed to teach school-aged children about world music. The new episode focuses on the music, culture, instruments and storytelling traditions of Costa Rica, Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Panama. The episode will air again at 3:30 p.m. on
The programming is made possible by a PNC Foundation grant.
In addition to the initial and subsequent radio broadcasts April 25-26 and May 1, students and families will be able to access program information on Classic 107.3’s website through a Prezi presentation that incorporates visual images, maps, audio clips, text and craft activities in a user-friendly and engaging way.
Students can follow along with the broadcasts as they use the online materials, or access the Musical Ancestries information at any time. Four Musical Ancestries programs are planned for the 2019-2020 school year, with the next broadcast focused on India.
