NPR’s From the Top with Host Christopher O’Riley, the preeminent showcase for young musicians heard weekly on WRTI and WWFM, will record a radio broadcast at the Smith-McFarland Theater at East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania Friday, July 21 at 1 PM.
The popular NPR radio program features the amazing performances and captivating personal stories of extraordinary young classical musicians from across the country.
The taping will feature the international debut of the National Youth Orchestra of China. Under the baton of Ludovic Morlot, the program will also include an entertaining mix of interviews, personal stories, full orchestra, and chamber music performances showcasing the inspiring members of the 2017 orchestra in its international debut.
