Classical 90.5 partnered with The Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts on this ambitious project which included a live-taping of NPR’s From the Top with host Christopher O’Riley in Whitney Hall on February 3rd as part of the Gheens Great Expectations concert, sponsored by The Gheens Foundation.  In addition, Classical 90.5 and The Kentucky Center worked with From the Top’s education outreach staff and JCPS to bring these outstanding soloists into four schools to bring their inspiring artistry to music students.
