NPR’s From the Top with Host Christopher O’Riley: Yountville, California / 225
This week’s show comes to you from Yountville, California in the heart of the Napa Valley, where you’ll meet a teenage clarinetist who’ll play one of Mozart’s most exquisite pieces and then talk about a visionary music education program he created. Also, a 12-year-old local pianist gives you the inside scoop on Napa culture, and a stellar soprano who was on our program a decade ago comes back to share what’s happened in her life and music since then.
Get on the Map! Read about inspiring arts leaders like Perry Choi and tell us about the people in your community who are making a difference through music.
