NPR's From the Top with Host Christopher O'RileyWe welcome applications from classically-trained musicians, ages 8-18, who have not graduated from high school. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, although applicants interested in a specific recording may indicate so on their application. Live auditions are also held periodically across the country, but are not required to apply.
The Jack Kent Cooke Young Artist AwardJack Kent Cooke Young Artists are awarded up to $10,000 to help offset the often prohibitively expensive costs of studying classical music at a high level. Each year, From the Top chooses approximately 20 exceptional pre-collegiate musicians ages 8-18 to receive the Award. All recipients also appear on NPR's From the Top.
