Broadcast from Cincinnati's Music Hall, the program will spotlight accomplished teen musicians in programs taped around the country. The program will incorporate performances and interviews with young violinist Caroline Goulding and others, to include pianists Hilda Huang and Ji-Yong , cellist Matthew Allen, violinist Chad Hoopes, vocalist Gloria McNerney, composer Stephen Feigenbaum, and tenor saxophonist Corey Dundee.
Among the works to be performed is Festival Fanfare by Steven Reineke, the orchestra's associate conductor, who will conduct the Pops in his own work. The October 25 concert will be recorded and air on February 14, 2009; the Pops is also recording a "From the Top" CD for Telarc for release in 2009.
Caroline Goulding is no stranger to the public airwaves and has previously appeared on National Public Radio's "From the Top". In 2008, Caroline signed on with Telarc Records which will release her first CD in the summer of 2009. Ms. Goulding started her violin career at age 3 with Julia Kurtyka and now studies with Paul Kantor at the Cleveland Institute of Music. Aspen Music Festival and School, Juilliard School (young artist in the Starling –Delay Symposium), Interlochen Center for the Arts and The Ceilidh Trail School of Celtic Music are some of her music schools. An appearance on the "Martha Show" (Martha Stewart) and a Carnegie Hall appearance are some of her recent activities.
The Stradivari Society of Chicago has honored Caroline with the use of an A&H Amati violin (made in 1617) which once was owned by Beethoven's former patrons, the Lobkowicz family. Geoffrey Fushi, Chairman of the Straivari Society, has characterized Ms. Goulding as "one who is destined for greatness"!
