NPR’s From the Top with Host Christopher O’Riley: Boston, MA / Show 358
From the Media Arts Center at Roxbury Community College, this episode of From the Top brings together a cast of fantastic young performers with an all-student audience! We meet a remarkable 13-year-old pianist who shares how much happier she became when she stopped comparing herself to others, a teenage trombone quartet performs two pieces back-to-back that were composed centuries apart, and students from the audience ask the performers questions onstage.
