Puzzle for the Week of November 19

    Martha Graham and her Music

One of Martha Graham’s notable quotes was “Dance is the hidden language of the soul.” In this puzzle, you must find names of dances ‘hidden’ within sentences. For example, in the sentence “During the family’s trip to Manhattan, good times were had by all”, the dance tango is hidden, connected from the end of ‘Manhattan’ to the beginning of ‘good’.The name of the dance may be hidden either forwards or backwards within the sentences, so look carefully! Ignore punctuation and spaces between words. All hidden dances are at least six letters long.

1. We were ecstatic our antenna started to work again after going kaput last week.
2. It’s a fact that the more lobster an arrogant man eats, the more shellfish he becomes.
3. What a sad rascal the boy was after he was scolded by his parents for his behavior.
4. The pastel color schemes of the room added a sense of cozy decor to the house.
5. Together with the orchestra’s maestro, I kayaked down the Volga river.
6. The end of an era came quickly for the team’s coach after three successive losses.

1. Courante (ecstatic our antenna)
2. Bolero (more lobster)
3. Csárdás (sad rascal)
4. Zydeco (cozy decor)
5. Troika (maestro, I kayaked)
6. Macarena (an era came)

You have opened up the world of Classical Music to me, where previously, it seemed too complicated.
Steffen Demeter
This is simply one of the very best radio programmes in the medium!...The study of the people, the times, and the events that inform the music we otherwise enjoy and even, heaven forbid, take for granted, brings the entire world of the music and the composer to life.
Walther Davies
There isn't a program you broadcast on Exploring Music" that isn't of interest. I find them all engaging. It is a combination of variety of subject, intellectual curiosity and your obvious enthusiasm which characterize your satisfying programs.
Michael Sanders
It’s a great way to re-engage myself with consciousness before heading off to work.
I Love this program! I am in 7th grade and I am the complete opposite of the other kids. I am 4th chair in the orchestra and I love to read. But most of all, I LOVE classical music!
Claudia Wertz
Your show has helped open my mind and heart to this world of music, and every show I hear confirms my place in music and gives me new ideas for where I'd like to go with it in the future….I grew up with classical music as a child and always held it in my heart, but I didn't have the confidence to be a good student (or a good violinist.)
Christine Anderson
Listening to you is almost interactive.You invite us in with so many well modulated dramatic and informative comments, enticing, enthusiastic interpretations, and coherent, beautiful presentations. It's a privilege to follow you into the musical space you create.
Sally Rosenbaum
I just love this program. It is soothing and comfortable at the end of the day. I find his comments interesting, but they aren't so dragged out that there is very little music. The balance of both is just right.
