"As the large listening audience and full concert halls show, “From the Top” has won the hearts of classical music lovers and others who simply enjoy the freshness, enthusiasm and talent of young people. As part its 10th anniversary season, the show will hold a live taping Feb. 6 at Jordan Hall in Boston featuring an alumnus who now is a professional trumpeter, as well as up-and-coming teenagers from Dorchester, Norwood and Newton.
Expect to hear not just impressive performances but to get a feel for the kids who make the music. O’Riley clearly likes to have a good time with these musicians, who often laugh at his comments. Anyone who believes the stereotype of the nerdy, socially inept musician will think again after these engaging interviews."
