The beautiful Moody Concert Hall at University of Alabama is the site for this week’s From the Top, where you'll hear a young organist from California perform Bach’s Trio Sonata No. 1 and an outstanding mezzo-soprano sing a beautiful aria from "Orfeo ed Euridice" by Gluck. Also, you'll meet a very young piano duo performing the work written by the younger of the two (he's only ten)!
