Christopher O’Riley: “Out of My Hands”
Saturday, Nov. 16 at 8 p.m.
Christopher O'Riley is well known for hosting NPR's "From the Top" for over a decade. He's also well regarded for his live performances and recordings of classical works from Rachmaninoff, Beethoven, Chopin, Ravel and more.

In this concert, "Out Of My Hands," O'Riley performs music from R.E.M., Portishead, Cocteau Twins, Pink Floyd, Nirvana, The Bad Plus, The Smiths, Tears for Fears, as well as material from Radiohead and Elliott Smith.
The concert will be followed by a reception with Mr. O'Riley.
