Christopher O’Riley

Known to millions as the host of NPR’s From the Top, the most popular classical radio show ever, Christopher O’Riley continues to enjoy the most diverse creative life of any pianist of his generation: now in its 15th year, he collaborates with and introduces to nationwide audiences the next generation of Classical music stars every week over more than 200 stations (and the two-year PBS run of ‘From the Top Live from Carnegie Hall garnered two Emmys). As recitalist, his programs embrace a multitude of styles and genres from pre-Baroque to compositions of the present day: as concerto soloist and conductor, the dozens of works in his repertoire with orchestra span all centuries.

O’Riley needed an updated website capable of not only projecting the depth and variety of his professional work along side an equally diverse event schedule, but also serve as a new home for his official online store and a very active blog. Venture’s e-commerce functionality handles all of O’Riley’s dynamic needs for both digital downloads and traditional product fulfillment with a fully automated checkout and payment processing experience.

In addition to the e-commerce features, O’Riley’s site features a wealth of custom graphics and templates that can be used to maintain his look and feel when adding new products and downloads.
