From the Top
w/ Christopher O'Riley
Featuring nearly twice as much music as From the Top's regular episodes, this highlights program celebrates some of the best performances young people have given on From the Top over the past couple of seasons. Amongst the extraordinary young people featured on this episode, we meet the youngest artist ever to record all of the Chopin Etudes with a major label and a violinist who, at the age of 9, isn't big enough for a full-sized violin but the sound she produces fills the theater and brings down the house.
