From the Top comes to you this week from the Boston Symphony Orchestra's summer home at Tanglewood, and features a rousing teenage wind ensemble performing two dances by Malcolm Arnold and twin siblings from California who play flute and double bass. Things get a little out of hand, however, when the local police show up along with the conductor of the Boston Pops, Keith Lockhart!
