Performance Today Weekend
with Fred Child
This two hour weekly program features classical music in concert from studios and sites across the nation and around the world, as well as classical music news, interviews and features.
 9 AM
From the Top
w/ Christopher O'Riley
From the Top visits the recital hall of the Bremen Jewish Heritage Museum in Atlanta, Georgia. In honor of that setting, the young performers celebrate Jewish themed music and the music of Jewish composers. We'll hear a teenage violinist perform Ravel's gorgeous Kaddish, a wonderful Atlanta-based youth choir sings a piece by a contemporary Jewish composer, and we hear a story from a young guitar player about his life as one part Texan and one part Israeli
