NPR’s From the Top with Host Christopher O’Riley: Idyllwild, California / 323
This special show features the excellent students studying at the Idyllwild Arts Academy. We hear a wonderful young cellist from China perform the music of Schumann, we’ll meet a self-described “flute-playing country boy” from rural Oklahoma, and we’ll enjoy a brand new piece for string octet commissioned by the Idyllwild Arts Academy on the occasion of the school’s 70th anniversary.
