Book From the Top

"It's serious music, but classically kids." The New York Times

From the Top’s popular weekly NPR radio show is recorded as a live concert event in communities large and small all across America. A live taping of From the Top is a community-wide celebration of music, education, and family programming with hosts that range from radio stations to performing arts presenters both large and small and conference planners.

From the Aspen Music Festival to Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center; the Kahilu Theatre in Hawaii to the Chandler Music Hall in Randolph, VT, From the Top has proven to be a great way to make a strong, cost-effective statement about your commitment to kids and cultural programming. The live show generates media coverage, revenue, and goodwill for presenters and affords significant outreach opportunities through talent search and educational projects
