From the Top

Show Summary

From the Top aired originally in January 2000. The radio show from NPR features musicians age 8 to 18 from all across the United States and Canada. Christopher O'Riley, host of both the radio series and the new television format, a famed pianist in his own right, works and performs with the young performers. Now in its second season, the thirteen half hour episodes feature some of America's most talented young classical artists. Each episode of From the Top features five artists, either soloists or chamber ensembles selected from a pool of thousands of applications. Since the beginning of the show, over 1000 talented artists have appeared on the program. Each of these young artists brings breathtaking talent and incredible passion to their performances while sharing the often inspiring stories of their lives. The success of the radio format has spawned the television program From the Top: Live from Carnegie Hall. From the Top has outreach initiatives that help to bring classical music to classrooms and art programs nationwide.moreless
