Christopher O’Riley

January 17 @ 7:00 pm

$10 – $58

Acclaimed for his engaging and deeply committed performances, the pianist Christopher O’Riley is known to millions as the former host of NPR’s From the Top.  When working on the show, O’Riley introduced the next generation of classical-music stars to listeners each week. He now performs around the world and has garnered widespread praise for his untiring efforts to reach new audiences. O’Riley has performed as a soloist with virtually all of the major American orchestras. He strives to introduce new audiences to classical music with an almost missionary zeal by performing piano arrangements of music by Radiohead, Elliott Smith, Pink Floyd, and Nirvana alongside traditional classical repertoire. A prolific recording artist, O’Riley has recorded the music of Beethoven, Stravinsky, Scriabin, Liszt, Ravel, Gershwin, Debussy, and John Adams for Sony Classical, Oxingale Records, RCA Red Seal, Decca and Harmonia Mundi.
