But where do our winners go from there?

And what was Anne’s favorite moment in her recital?

A former Classical 90.5 Young Artist Competition winner will appear on this week’s episode of From the Top (Sundays at 6 pm). Louisvillian Anne Richardson, cello, who has also appeared on Classical 90.5’s Lunchtime Classics program, will perform as part of the Alumni Finale Trio. Ms. Richardson was part of the trio while she attended summer classes at the Aspen Music Festival and School.

Anne is finishing her time in the pre-college program at The Julliard School in New York City for music, drama and dance. She is giving her senior recital in May in Juilliard’s Morse Hall. Ms. Richardson’s future options are wide open as she has recently been accepted into Colburn, New England Conservatory, and Juilliard. Anne has appeared on From the Top previously.
