In October 2008, From the Top and the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra collaborated for three live concerts at Cincinnati Music Hall. Bringing together the energy of promising and engaging young artists, the affable presence of host Christopher O'Riley, and the power of Maestro Erich Kunzel and the Cincinnati Pops, the concert series culminated in this recording for Telarc Records and a From the Top broadcast on NPR. The Cincinnati Enquirer called the featured performers, "mature beyond their years, with jaw-dropping talent" and acknowledged that "these gifted musicians are also articulate, interesting and yes, normal kids."

Telarc Records, From the Top and the Cincinnati Pops are pleased to share one exceptional new composition and seven masterful performances by these outstanding kids, who are as much fun to meet as they are to listen to on this CD.
