The Breckenridge-based National Repertory Orchestra is partnering with Krystal 93 Radio to present a live broadcast of one of its most popular concerts, “Topilow Pops.” Tune in Friday at 7:30 p.m. to hear the pops program, featuring maestro Carl Topilow and soprano Margo Watson.

This is the first time that the National Repertory Orchestra has presented a live broadcast of a concert.

“The pops program is always a sellout, so the radio broadcast is a great way to share it with people,” said Douglas Adams, CEO of the National Repertory Orchestra.

Krystal 93 is the radio station of the Rockies, serving Summit County on 93.9 FM, Eagle County on 93.1 FM and Clear Creek County on 92.3 FM. It also streams online to listeners around the world at

“We are very excited about this new partnership with the National Repertory Orchestra and are looking forward to giving more people the opportunity to experience an NRO performance by broadcasting the show live,” said John O’Connor, general manager of Krystal 93. “This is truly local programming at its best.”

Each year, the National Repertory Orchestra’s “Topilow Pops” concert is one of the audience’s favorite concerts; children and adults alike will enjoy music from Broadway musicals, The Beatles and recent Disney films such as “Enchanted.”

“Carl Topilow has crafted a program which moves from classical pops (Pachelbel’s ‘Canon,’ considered to be one of the most beautiful pieces of music in the history of mankind) to music from the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean,’” Adams said.
