Great composers have always found inspiration in nature: a quiet stream, a rugged valley, a majestic mountain peak. The world’s natural wonders have been the starting point for some of the most memorable music ever created. And with the changing season, we invite you to join us as we celebrate this memorable music. It’s time to go outside again with KDFC’s Great Outdoors Week, all this week on Classical KDFC.

Check back all next week for new blogs each day celebrating the connections between music and the Great Outdoors. We’ll post links below as we publish new stories.

Be sure to follow along on our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for more fun all week long!
