From the Top Now Airing on Minnesota Public Radio!

We are thrilled to announce that starting November 6, From the Top with Host Christopher O’Riley will air weekly on Sundays at 12pm on Minnesota Public Radio (MPR)! We’ve been off the air in Minnesota for some time, and this very exciting news that we just received yesterday.

On a related note, Classical MPR’s Artist-in-Residence for 2011-12 is a three-time From the Top alum! 17-year-old violinist Chad Hoopes appeared on Show 171 in Cleveland, OH and Show 189 in Cincinnati, OH, and on Season 2 of PBS’ From the Top at Carnegie Hall a few years ago. As part of the Artist-In-Residence program, Chad will participate in educational activities at Minnesota schools and give concert performances in towns throughout the state. Click here to see a recent video of him performing Ravel’s “Tzigane” at the MacPhail Center for Music in St. Paul.
