Utah Public Radio’s newest program will be taped in front of a live audience in Utah on March 8.
In January UPR began airing the classical music program, "From the Top," twice a week. The show is a NPR-produced radio program.
Weber State University in Ogden is hosting a taping of the show on March 8, to be broadcast nationally in April 2012.
Host Christopher O’Riley will present performances by talented young musicians on the stage at Weber State University’s Browning Center for the Performing Arts.
"From the Top" is an hour-long program showcasing five high-caliber performances along with interviews, sketches and games. Taped before live audiences in concert halls from Boston to Honolulu, the show is now in its 12th broadcast year.
Utah Public Radio recently added "From the Top" to its list of classical music offerings, airing the program Friday afternoons at 2 p.m. with a repeat Sundays at 9 p.m.
A complete list of programs and station frequencies is posted online at www.upr.org, where visitors can also listen to a live stream of "From the Top" and other NPR programs.
In Ogden, listeners can hear UPR on 89.5 FM.
The event is open to the public and tickets are available at www.weberstatetickets.com or by calling 801-626-8500.
Utah Public Radio, a service of Utah State University, is Utah’s oldest public radio service and a member station of National Public Radio.
