I've always enjoyed listening to this show on NPR and was pleased to be able to attend this taping at Jordan Hall in Boston. The show is inspiring, amusing and a treat for the ears.

Many children present and they all paid attention. I took my 9yr old son who played the violin last year during school. He enjoyed it, laughed, clapped, listened, and said he wants to take up the violin again! Plenty of places to eat within...continued

I listen to this show on the radio every Saturday morning, so I jumped at the chance to purchase tickets on Goldstar. Christopher O'Reilly was a wonderful host, and the young musicians were fantastic! I brought my 'Little Sister' who had never...continued

This was a great take. The young performers were wonderful and Christopher O'Riley (emcee) did a terrific job keeping the hour and half flowing. Get there at least one-half hour prior to get seats together. The eight of us had dinner at...continued

Beautiful space to hear music, and a really delightful show for young and old alike. The performers were incredibly talented and Christopher O'Riley's gentle and witty interviewing manner is great too.

This is as good as it gets. What a privilege to hear the best from America's youth. Classical music is alive and well and living in the U.S.of A.

I took two young (9 and 11 years) ladies who are taking violin lessons. They were thrilled by the wonderful young musicians. Jordan Hall is a great venue to hear music. Very impressive.

Being there was beyond all expectations. Seeing and hearing these (young) virtuosos in person was truly thrilling, an opportunity not to be missed! Thank you Goldstar.

This was a great event. As a radio show and as a concert. It was amazing to see these kids, 13 through 20 perform fantastic pieces. Because the students were being showcased, they played pieces not usually heard in most concerts. And it is...continued
