FTT

It's coming soon!
From the Top, NPR’s phenomenally popular radio series highlighting the talents of young musicians age 8 to 18, comes to PBS television this April as From the Top: Live from Carnegie Hall. While the radio series continues uninterrupted, this new series of 13 half-hour television programs showcases the top-notch skills, offbeat humor, and compelling stories of America’s best young classical musicians. Celebrated pianist Christopher O’Riley, host of the radio series, fills that role on television as well, bringing stirring performances, engaging interviews, and a playful spirit to a family viewing audience. Occasional appearances by guest stars—violinist Joshua Bell, mezzo-soprano Denyce Graves, banjo player Béla Fleck, cellist Yo-Yo Ma—round out the offerings. For air dates and times, please visit www.pbs.org. To watch TV highlights, join us on YouTube at www.youtube.com/classicalkids.
