About

From the Top goes into the archives to revisit some great performers and great performances. Audiences will reconnect with a cellist who was first turned on to contemporary music by playing a new work on From the Top, and is now a member of the Pittsburgh New Music Ensemble; a young trumpet player and composer who is now working as a composer and musician in Hollywood; and a marimba player who has become a successful business consultant and fund-raiser for the arts.

Performers and Repertoire:

Cellist Victoria Bass, 23, from Brandon, Manitoba, performs Sonata for Cello No. 6 in A, 1st mvt. by Luigi Boccherini

Trumpet player Sean Hennessey, 23, from Colorado Springs, CO, performs Proclamation by Ernest Bloch
