The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center plays host to From the Top this week in an all ensemble program recorded at New York's Lincoln Center. You'll hear five wonderfully different chamber groups all from schools in the New York area, and From the Top works hard to convince a 14-year-old clarinetist that it would be good for him to see the Rockettes.
