Every week WXXI-FM Classical 91.5 celebrates outstanding young classical musicians on the program From the Top (Sundays at 5:00 p.m.) But there are so many more outstanding young classical musicians around the world that we don't hear about as often.
From the Topâ€™s first international show in BogotÃ¡, Colombia last week was a collaboration with the Batuta National Foundation (Colombiaâ€™s national youth music program) and the FilarmÃ³nica Joven de Colombia (Colombiaâ€™s national youth orchestra), and was one of the most inspiring and rewarding journeys we have ever experienced.
Internationally acclaimed harpist Yolanda Kondonassis will be awarded the 2011 Cleveland Arts Prize for Music and Dance on June 28th at the 51st annual awards ceremony at the Gartner Auditorium at The Cleveland Museum of Art.
