Meet Wendy Weather, your local musical meteorologist at station WMSO. Wendy’s playful forecast introduces students to the ways music can sound like a peaceful morning, a sudden storm, softly falling snow and more, using dynamics such as piano (quiet) and FORTE (loud). Expect thunder and lightning, but leave the umbrella at home!
