From the Top presents the amazing performances and captivating personalities of extraordinary young classical musicians from across the country.  

The 90-minute show, recorded for future broadcast, features virtuosic performances and entertaining interviews with young soloists and/or ensembles. Young performers share their passion for classical music, and speak about their non-musical lives.

A celebration of great music and great kids, From the Top appeals to diverse audiences, but is especially recommended for ages 7 and up.
