NPR’s ‘From The Top’ to audition young musicians

From page A9 | May 16, 2012 |

“From the Top,” the popular nationally syndicated  NPR radio program showcasing America’s best young classical musicians, will be at the Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts at UC Davis on Thursday, Oct. 25, at 8 p.m.

The show is seeking talent for the live concert recording at the Mondavi Center. Application and scholarship information is available online at www.fromthetop.org. Applications and recorded auditions are accepted continuously and on a rolling admissions basis.

“From the Top” welcomes audition entries from young classical musicians, ages 8 to 18, who have not graduated from high school. Solo performers on all instruments, composers and vocalists, as well as instrumental or vocal ensembles are welcome.

In addition to seeking talent for its upcoming live concert in Davis, the program seeks young musicians for other concerts that are part of its national tour.

Locally, “From the Top” is heard on Capital Public Radio’s KXPR (88.9 FM) Sundays at 3 p.m., and online at capradio.org, as well as on more than 200 other stations nationwide. The variety show format features serious musical performances and lively interviews with some of the country’s best pre-collegiate performers.

This blend of music, talk and humor draws nearly 700,000 listeners nationwide each week. After every live concert recording, performers are invited to share their music, experiences and related passions with their peers in schools and/or a variety of community settings through From the Top’s Arts Leadership program.

Of the more than 100 musicians chosen to appear on the radio program every year, approximately 20 will receive Jack Kent Cooke Young Artist Awards in support of furthering their musical education. These up to $10,000 scholarships are given to deserving young classical musicians between the ages of 8 and 18 who have high levels of artistic achievement, demonstrated financial need and a solid academic record.

Tickets to the Mondavi Center broadcast will be available beginning Aug. 10 at www.mondaviarts.org or (530) 754-2787. Complete information about the Mondavi Center’s 2012-13 season also is available online and by phone.
