It's brooms carrying buckets of water on SymphonyCast, July 2020

Sorcerer's Apprentice broom buckets
Sorcerer's Apprentice broom buckets

For many of us, just a few notes from Paul Dukas' The Sorcerer's Apprentice immediately conjurs up images of water rising as the brooms carry buckets of water to the Sorcerer's basement.  Enjoy this rhythmic music again, perhaps with the whole family on the July 3rd broadcast.
