NPR’s From the Top with Host Christopher O’Riley Cincinnati, Ohio / 286

Wednesday, April 2, 2014 at 8:00 PM  |  Corbett Auditorium  |  Presented by University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music


From Corbett Auditorium in Cincinnati, Ohio, this program features one of the strongest pre-collegiate music programs in the country: The Cincinnati Starling Project. Host Christopher O’Riley joins Starling’s flagship orchestra to play Mozart, we’ll hear a 12-year-old violinist and one of the program’s most talented young soloists perform the music of Edward Elgar, and three From the Top alumni return to share their stories of mega success on YouTube and to perform a wonderfully schmaltzy comedic violin trio.

BONUS: Watch a video of the performers taking it beyond the concert hall, visiting schools in Rowan County, Kentucky.
