Congratulations to 10 year old Avery Gagliano, a piano student of Marina Alekseyeva, on her recent performance on NPR's From the Top, the hit NPR radio program featuring America’s best young classical musicians and hosted by acclaimed pianist Christopher O’Riley.
For the past decade, From the Top has been the preeminent showcase for America’s best young musicians. Through award-winning NPR and PBS programs, online media, a national tour of live events, and education programs, From the Top shares the stories and performances of pre-collegiate musicians with millions each week.
For the program, Avery recorded Aaron Copland's The Cat and the Mouse back in April at the Hosmer Concert Hall at the Crane School of Music at SUNY Potsdam.
Avery is in the 5th grade at John Eaton Elementary school and when she’s not making music she enjoys reading, math, swimming, dancing, watching movies and playing with her sister.
