Recorded: Sunday, March 30, 2003

This week, From the Top comes to you from Denison University’s Swasey Chapel in Granville, Ohio, where you'll hear a teen soprano singing Samuel Barber's humorous "A Green Lowland of Pianos" and an outstanding 18-year-old violinist performing Bazzini's "Dance of the Goblins." You'll also meet a young man whose creative musical performance led to his winning a high school popularity pageant, and Roving Reporter Hayley Goldbach explores the wacky world of good luck charms and rituals used by young musicians.
