Brief Applause: From the Top

Music is powerful stuff! That's the belief of thousands of talented teens from across the country, who prove the power of classical music, each week on the NPR program From the Top. From the Top travels the 50 states to discover and spotlight some of our nation's best and brightest teenage musicians. Recently, host Christopher O'Riley and the rest of the show's crew came to Northeast Ohio, to record their classical variety program, inside the Cleveland Institute of Music's new Mixon Hall. We sent our ideastream cameras out to capture what it's like to get From the Top... to the stage!
