William was a featured solo performer this week during the live show and taping of NPR’s nationally acclaimed radio show “From the Top.”  The show was taped in front of a sold-out audience at the historic Palace Theater in Grapevine, Texas on June 27, 2012.  The audience included a large contingent from the Military Child Education Coalition who sponsored this special show that featured young musicians from military families.

“What an incredible experience – I had a great time meeting other military kids who share my passion for classical music!  Christopher O’Riley is a terrific host and mentor.  The entire “From the Top” organization is first-class.  The entire crew made us all feel like professionals and I’m confident we put together a very entertaining and enjoyable show.  I feel inspired and look forward to promoting classical music as we discussed during our post-show Arts Leadership seminar.”
