Episode Summary

Jumping Through Hoopes
Tonight on From the Top at Carnegie Hall, we meet 13-year old violinist Chad Hoopes from Shaker Heights, Ohio and 17-year old violist Shundeena Beard from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Chad, who comes from a very musical family, is somewhat of a local celebrity in his hometown where he was recently featured in a Cleveland Indians television commercial. Shundeena draws a great deal of her musical inspiration from her brother who is severely disabled, and to whom she is extremely devoted. Chad and Shundeena will each perform a solo piece accompanied by Christopher O'Riley, and will then join 17-year old Rachel Sandman from La Canada, California, 17-year old Patrick McGuire from Westford, Massachusetts, along with O'Riley to perform the third movement Scherzo from Robert Schumann's Piano Quintet in E-flat Major, Op. 44.moreless
