Northwest Previews, hosted by Andrea Murray and with interviews by the All Classical Portland on-air team, highlights outstanding classical music events in the Portland area for the coming week and in the weeks to come. Unique in its comprehensive coverage and strategic in its mission, Northwest Previews simultaneously shines a light on local artists, visiting international artists, and arts organizations while keeping culture-hungry Portlanders in the know. Core to the program are the artists and music-makers who share illuminating insight on process, individual works, and program themes. These interview segments are especially exciting for anyone wanting to attend the concerts; but even without the context of the full performance, you’ll be enthralled by the entertaining conversation between your favorite artists and favorite hosts.

The one-hour program airs weekly on Thursdays at 6 p.m.

Individual interview segments available to stream on demand here, with new segments added each week as they air!
