NOTE-ABLE MUSICIANS ... In a world where many young people are aspiring to be the next electronic music DJ or pop superstar, two teens from Palo Alto are deviating from the trend by harnessing their talent in playing classical music that has taken them to the national stage. Davis You, 17, and James Poe, 18, will show off their melodic flair on NPR's "From The Top.". You, a cellist in his third year at Palo Alto High School, will be tackling II. Scherzo from the Sonata for Cello and Piano in G minor, Op. 65 by Frédéric Chopin. Poe, a violinist working toward a certificate in violin performance at Yale University, will take the stage with "Tzigane" for violin and piano by Maurice Ravel. When the teens aren't delving into music from past centuries, they have other interests that bring them back to modern times. You enjoys computer programming and fueling up on fast food from In-N-Out with friends. Poe has taken up an interest in photography and producing and performing covers of popular music published on his YouTube channel "Jupiter Poe." The show is scheduled to air on KDFC at 7 p.m. on April 14, though the podcast version of the show will be available online on April 8.
