Special Event: SDYS Chamber Orchestra Concert Taping for NPR’s “From the Top”

Apr 13, 6:00 pm

SDYS’ own Chamber Orchestra musicians will be special guests of the La Jolla Music Society and included in a live taping of From the Top, one of National Public Radio’s most popular weekly music programs. From the Top shares the stories and performances of pre-college classical musicians with more than 700,000 listeners each week. Vijay Gupta, violinist, social justice advocate, and 2018 MacArthur Fellow, hosts the program.

Held at the Baker-Baum Concert Hall in the new Conrad Prebys Performing Arts Center, the event will also be part of the opening of this new heart of cultural, arts education, and community event activity in La Jolla.

The show is also seeking local talent for the live show recording. Applications are welcome from classically-trained musicians, ages 8-18, who have not yet graduated from high school. Composers and ensembles, including mariachi bands, are encouraged to apply. Needs-based scholarships are also available. Please visit FromTheTop.org/apply for more information
