NPR’s From the Top with Host Christopher O’Riley: Carmel, Indiana / 233
This week, from the Palladium at the Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel, Indiana, you’ll hear a 16-year-old perform music by the “Czar of Cellists,” a young harpist share what life is like on her Indiana farm, and four teenagers describe the very different ways their parents got them through times when they wanted to quit music. Also, special guest Michael Feinstein, renowned interpreter of the Great American Songbook, sings Gershwin accompanied by our kids.
Guest Artist Michael Feinstein performs “Love Walked In” by George Gershwin, arranged by Lee Blaske, accompanied by harpist Katherine Kapelsohn, Quartet Toujours, and pianist Christopher O’Riley.
