Christopher O'Riley, Host
For the past decade, From the Top has been a showcase for America's most talented young musicians. The San Francisco Chronicle called the weekly radio broadcast "contemporary culture's feel-good success story." Hosted by pianist Christopher O'Riley, the weekly show reaches more than 700,000 loyal listeners on 200 stations as it shares the stories and performances of extraordinary young musicians ranging in age from eight to eighteen. Taped before a live audience, each program provides a compelling and entertaining window into the world of these young performers, who pursue life with passion, determination, and joy. Be a part of this exciting experience as a member of the live audience when From the Top returns to Hodgson Hall.
