“From The Top” Spreads the Chamber Music Fever
From The Top‘s Center for the Development of Arts Leaders (CDAL). These experienced high school musicians have two goals: to impart the skills necessary to our students to create and sustain their own small chamber ensembles and to improve their own teaching skills. This is the second group of Dudamel musicians to spend their Wednesdays learning new repertoire and new ways of making music together. Spring from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons was the piece selected by the students.
From The Top “celebrates the amazing performances and captivating stories of extraordinary young classical musicians” and is one of the most popular classical music programs on NPR radio. Each one hour episode presents performances along with interviews, sketches and games. The program is hosted by acclaimed pianist Christopher O’Riley and is taped before live audiences in concert halls from Boston to Honolulu.
From The Top is recording rehearsals, the performance and interviews with our student musicians for a segment of their upcoming radio program. All of the student participants in this partnership have been invited to attend the Feb. 9th taping of the program at Jordan Hall.
