From the Top in Bogotá, Colombia

For the past few years I’ve assisted freelance with interviews and reports on young classical musicians from around the country for From the Top on National Public Radio. From the Top has gone international lately with this latest show in Colombia and I couldn’t be more proud. I’m thrilled to have been a small part of some of these interviews for From the Top’s excursion to the Teatro Mayor Julio Mario Santo Domingo in Bogotá for a show featuring the Colombian Youth Philharmonic. Since then the radio show and live tour has continued traveling and in addition to national acts I’ve also Skype interviewed a young musician in Beijing for their show in China. From the Top is an indispensable show because it features talented kids in a way that shows their lighter side: the ways in which despite their passion for classical music they are really just kids, or teenagers, with quirks just like any other kid. I love contributing to the show and highly recommend checking out a few episodes even if you’ve never listened to classical music.
