This week, From the Top comes to you from Boettcher Concert Hall in Denver where our teenagers play with the great Colorado Symphony. You'll hear an outstanding 17-year-old organist join the orchestra to perform the final movement of the Saint-Saens Symphony No. 3 and meet a teenage violinist who plays Sarasate's Zigeunerweisen while sharing the stage with her parents who are orchestra members. Also, the Colorado Children’s Chorale sings the music of Randall Thompson.
Aaron Copland’s Rodeo takes place on a ranch out west. This week on Classics for Kids, saddle up and enjoy the story of the cowboys and girls who gather together for a barn dance to celebrate the end of their week.
Dogs make great cinematic heroes. They're the perfect protagonists for the classic movie story themes of courage, hope and loyalty. Plus, they're cute, charming, furry and speak a language everyone understands.
This week, Terrance McKnight features Kevin James's composition NYC Playground, recorded by the Young People's Chorus of New York, and the Face the Music ensemble performs works by Phil Kline.
