From the Top with host Christopher O'Riley, the preeminent showcase for young musicians, announces its 2013-2014 National Radio Taping Tour for recording its popular NPR radio program. The tour includes live taping events at From the Top's home at New England Conservatory's Jordan Hall in Boston, as well as the National Music Museum in Vermillion, South Dakota, the new Bing Concert Hall at Stanford University, and the historic Tivoli Theatre in Chattanooga, Tennessee. From the Top will also tape at Aspen Music Festival and School in Colorado and at the Virginia Arts Festival in Norfolk, Virginia.

Broadcast on nearly 250 stations nationwide to an audience of more than 700,000 listeners, From the Top celebrates the amazing performances and captivating stories of America's best pre-college classical musicians. Considered the most popular weekly classical music programs on public radio, the show has been described by the Boston Globe as, "an entertaining, accessible and inspirational mix of outstanding musical performances, informal interviews, skits and games; the show is a celebration of extraordinary musicians who happen to be teenagers leading fairly normal lives."

This season, From the Top will also award more than $200,000 in scholarships to select performers on the radio show through its Jack Kent Cooke Young Artist Award. Since 2005, this program has awarded more than $1.8 million to pre-collegiate musicians with financial need to support their musical development.

Beyond the radio show, From the Top helps young musicians take their music beyond the concert hall to diverse audiences in school and community settings across the country in conjunction with the National Tour. From the Top will do special increased community outreach in select markets on the tour this year.

From the Top is now accepting applications from eligible young musicians at fromthetop.org/casting.
