Members of The Cincinnati Starling Project are featured this month on From the Top.

From Colorado to Miami and up to New England, this month features performers from across the country telling their stories and showing their skills.

11/2      From Harris Concert Hall at the Aspen Music Festival and School, you'll meet a 16-year-old pianist performing from Préludes, Book II by Claude Debussy, a 14-year-old cellist performing the music of Edouard Lalo, and a 16-year-old violinist performing Tchaikovsky’s playful Waltz-Scherzo.

11/9     From the New England Conservatory’s Jordan Hall, this show features amazing performances and inspiring stories from some of America’s best young classical musicians.

11/16    From Corbett Auditorium in Cincinnati, Ohio, this week's 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.

11/23    From George Washington University’s Lisner Auditorium with Washington Performing Arts in a special show sponsored by the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation, in celebration of their 15th anniversary. This recording will feature several performers who are Jack Kent Cooke Young Artist Award recipients.

11/30    From the New World Center in Miami Beach, you'll meet a 13-year-old violinist who’s studying with a New World Symphony fellow, a 16-year-old violist who is an outspoken champion of the viola, and a 17-year-old soprano who is taught by her Grammy Award-winning mom. Also, you'll hear a movement of the Brahms Piano Quintet performed by current New World Symphony fellows who just happen to be alumni of our show!
