Episode Summary

Style and Substance
Tonight on From the Top at Carnegie Hall we meet a young lady who takes the artistry of performing classical music to a new level by infusing her performances with her sense of personal style. Eleven-year old violinist Simone Porter from Seattle, Washington designs her own concert attire and frequently bases her designs on what repertoire she's performing-she even made a dress especially for playing Mozart and Mendelssohn! Thirteen-year old cellist and volleyball player Jonah Ellsworth from Cambridge, Massachusetts, accompanied by Host Christopher O'Riley, performs Paganini's Variations on One String on a Theme of Rossini using only one string of his cello. Eighteen-year old tuba player Ibanda Ruhumbika is passionate about sharing music with kids and is a member of the prestigious Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra. He dreams of playing in a major orchestra like the New York Philharmonic one day, and is joined onstage at Carnegie Hall by members of the Phil's brass section for a performance of That's a Plenty by Lew Pollack (arr. Steve Cooper) to conclude the episode.moreless
