This month, Classics for Kids features Charles Ives.
This week's show is Folk Tunes in Classical Music
The Country Band March has 12 recognizable popular and folk tunes in it. But Ives was not the only composer to put borrowed tunes in his music. Many classical composers -- including Ludwig van Beethoven, Mily Balakirev, and Percy Grainger -- used folk music in the pieces they wrote.

Classics for Kids is sponsored by The Charles H. Dater Foundation
