V-POW! Music Producer Video Pick of the Week

As you might imagine, the music production team at From the Top is constantly reviewing recordings and music videos submitted by outstanding young musicians from across the country. We’re frequently blown away by the performances we see, and thought it might be fun to share some of these videos with you! These V-POW posts will feature videos of incredible young performers we know or just amazing clips we think you might enjoy. Feel free to submit your own ideas for consideration via the comments section!

This submission is from our Music Producer, Tom Vignieri

This amazing YouTube video features guitarist and From the Top alumnus Roberto Granados, who appeared on Show 186 in Lubbock, TX as a 9-year-old. He knocked us all out, not only by putting his classical chops on display, but also by showing us his considerable skills as a rock and flamenco guitarist.

Roberto has since served as a From the Top emissary performing at the 36th Annual Emmy Awards and at an Organizing for America event in Los Angeles where he met President Obama. In May, he’ll be performing Rodrigo’s “Concierto de Aranjuez” with the California Symphony.

In this video you’ll see why Roberto is so special as he plays an incredible piece with his flamenco guitar teacher, Jason McGuire, at the Verdi Club in San Francisco. They’re performing the duet arrangement of Jason’s Eb Bulerias “Paisaje Jerezano.”
