The nationally-distributed NPR program From the Top recorded a live show last winter at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts with GRoW @ The Wallis, the umbrella for a robust mix of arts education and outreach programs at The Wallis, that will air locally on Classical KUSC (FM 91.5), on Sunday, October 4, 6 pm.

Featured musicians include 10-year-old pianist Olivia Larco from Pasadena, California performing Chopin’s Étude Op.25 no.11, "Winter Wind" Los Angeles Children’s Chorus (Fernando Malvar-Ruiz, Artistic Director) performing “Pueri Herbraeorum” by Randall Thompson and “Over the Rainbow” by Harold Arlen, arranged by Mark Hayes 17-year-old cellist Mei Hotta from Torrance, California performing Piano Trio, III.

In addition, The Quantum Saxophone Quartet from Dallas, Texas performs Marcelo Zarvos’ “Memory” from Nepomuk's Dances.

From the Top, distributed by NPR, is the most popular weekly one-hour music program on public radio. Young performers share their passion for classical music through performance and conversation, giving insight into their unique worlds, from musical pursuits to day-in-the-life musings.

From the Top’s live appearance and recording at The Wallis was made possible with generous support from Gregory Annenberg Weingarten and GRoW @ Annenberg, and Phyllis and Angelo Mozilo.
