St. Paul, Minn. — Teresa Root loves the outdoors as much as she loves teaching. And she combines both her passions at the Dodge Nature Center in St Paul, Minn.

Her commitment to introducing the beauty and majesty of the natural world to all her students is matched in a playlist that celebrates the voice of nature in music.

Debussy: Claire de Lune with pianist Martin Jones. Nimbus 5160

Britten: Four Sea Interludes, "Dawn" with the London Symphony Orchestra conducted by Andre Previn. EMI 64736

Saint-Saëns: Carnival of the Animals "Finale" with I Musici de Montreal conducted by Yuli Turovsky with pianist David Owen Norris. Chandos 9246

Vaughan-Williams: The Lark Ascending with the Royal Philharmonic conducted by Barry Wordsworth with violinist, Janine Jansen. London 475 011

Joe and Mary Keyes own the Howard Street Booksellers in Hibbing, Minn. Their love of Minnesota history, the theater and the books they sell make for a most eclectic musical playlist.
