Ravel's Bolero
Featured in Disney's Fantasia and based on a poem by Goethe, Dukas' The Sorcerer's Apprentice tells the story of a student who uses magical spells he hasn't yet learned to control. Pianist Michel Camilo, whose music combines elements of classical, jazz and world music, performs his own Piano Concerto #2. Conductor Leonard Slatkin presents four Ravel works, including his famous Bolero that demonstrate the composer's penchant for traditional dance forms.

Dear first-grade journal, This is the bestest musical ever, I tell you! Its got loads of funny songs, and its based on a bunch of books about the things I do in first grade by Barbara, Park. Whew! I'm glad I can write everything down in my Top-Secret Personal Beeswax Journal! And you know what? I think I might like first grade after all. Love, (but not the mushy kind) Junie B.
