LINCOLN — A Falls City, Neb., classical musician, David von Behren, has been selected to perform on the National Public Radio program “From the Top.”
The program features America’s best young classical musicians.
This week’s show began airing nationally on Monday. It will air on Omaha’s KVNO at 5 p.m. Sunday and on KXCV out of Maryville, Mo., at 6 p.m. Sunday.
Von Behren, 19, won a spot on the show via auditions and taped his performance before a live audience at the El Paso Summer Music Festival earlier this month.
A recent graduate of Falls City High School, von Behren has been studying piano since age 4 and violin since age 5. He will perform during the radio show on the pipe organ, which he began playing six years ago. He has studied the organ under teachers at the University of Indiana, Harvard and Rice Universities, and the U.S. Air Force Academy.
He was recently admitted to study organ performance/sacred music at the Cleveland Institute of Music.
