Traveling With Instruments

Because From the Top tapes radio shows across the country, we often fly in young musicians from different states to appear on broadcast tapings. If you’re a musician, you know traveling with your instrument can sometimes be tricky. The American Federation of Musician recently launched this petition to make air travel more friendly for musicians.

Even if you’re not a musician, you can probably imagine the difficulties of hauling a large cello around. The video below shows one ordeal Octet Abbraccio, featured on our 2010 Ames, Iowa show, went through in trying to return home to Ohio. (Starts around 1:15). In true From the Top style, these young musicians kept a light heart and a humorous approach to the situation.

You can show your support for young musicians with large instruments by signing the petition here.
