From the Top

Boston, Massachusetts

Saturday, August 02, 2014

This week From the Top brings you to Jordan Hall in Boston, Mass., for a series of string performances, and one piano. The program features “The Lark” by Mikhail Glinka brought to life by a wonderfully musical 11-year-old pianist. We'll also enjoy some unaccompanied Bach performed by a very thoughtful Boston-area teenager and a teenage string quartet shares moving stories about the healing power of music in their own lives.
