From the Top, with Christopher O'Riley

Today’s show was recorded at the historic Plaza Theater in El Paso, Texas.  An extraordinary 13-year-old clarinetist performs the Concertino, Op.26, by Carl Maria von Weber, and a charming 11-year-old harpist plays the music of Reinhold Gliere.  Also, a 19-year-old organist treats us to a performance on the Mighty Wurlitzer.
