Front Row LIVE! My Christopher O’Riley Interview

John Bathke & Christopher O’Riley

An enthusiastic audience of loyal music fans turned out last night for the debut of “Front Row LIVE!” at the South Orange Performing Arts Center (SOPAC).  I interviewed the classical pianist Christopher O’Riley, best known for his arrangements of songs by Radiohead, Tears For Fears, Elliott Smith, Pink Floyd and Nirvana. He also hosts the NPR show, “From The Top.”

SOPAC invited me to conduct the interview following his concert there. Die hard Radiohead and traditional classical music fans gave me the thumbs up after the show so if my questions were interesting to both groups, I’m more than happy.

More shows will be announced at http://www.sopacnow.org and I hope to see you there.
