Arts Leadership in Virginia Beach, VA

Last week, From the Top taped a radio show at the Sandler Center for the Performing Arts in sunny Virginia Beach. We were joined by six young artists from across the country for a phenomenal performance! The next day, all of our performers took part in the Arts Leadership Orientation, where they explored the power of music and the infinite possibilities for using their art to make a positive change.

In considering how musicians can make a difference, our performers agreed that “Arts Leadership Is…”

  1. Sharing your passion with others
  2. Never settling for mediocrity
  3. Going beyond what words can describe

Our performers wanted to commend the “fiery” repertoire of their show, as well as their post-concert outing for ice cream at the nearby Coldstone. They thus named their show “Fire and Ice(Cream),” and created a short video to introduce themselves and share their definitions for Arts Leadership. They also included an excerpt from a piece they all know and love: the Brahms Double Concerto. Check it out below!

Tune in the week of June 27th to hear their show! Broadcast times can be found here.
