About Us

All Classical Portland is an independent and community-funded radio station, providing access to classical music, outstanding performances, information about the arts, and more since 1983.

VISION: All Classical Portland believes that this music and this service should be accessible and inviting to all people, and all communities. We commit daily to that goal.

MISSION: All Classical Portland’s mission is to advance knowledge of and appreciation for classical music; to build and sustain culturally vibrant local and global communities around this art form; to reflect the spirit of the Pacific Northwest; and to foster integrity, quality, and innovation in all that we do.

VALUES: Classical music is for everyone. All Classical Portland welcomes all who seek inspiration, companionship, and comfort through music. These values are at the heart of what we do: accessibility, connection, creativity, diverse perspectives, inclusion, integrity, joy, and kindness.

All Classical Portland provides an innovative classical soundtrack of the Pacific Northwest. Our FM signals broadcast from the heart of the Columbia Gorge to the beautiful Oregon Coast, and from Willamette Valley’s wine country up to Vancouver, Washington. We serve 250,000+ local listeners in Oregon and SW Washington, and thousands more who tune in online from 100+ countries around the globe. Built on a broad base of community support, the majority of our funding comes from individual listeners, regional community-minded businesses, and foundations.

In 2019, All Classical Portland launched a second channel: the International Children’s Arts Network (ICAN). ICAN is an HD radio station for children, families, caregivers, and educators. The station’s diverse content is available through online streaming, via mobile app, and on demand. Like All Classical Portland, ICAN removes barriers to music, education, and the arts, focusing on thoughtful programming that inspires children to play, express emotions, and dream.

Whether you tune in each morning for your coffee with host Warren Black, catch a live on-air performance with Christa Wessel, or join John Burk every evening for a “sweet dreams” signature good night, this station is always here for you.

All Classical Portland is a nonprofit 501(c)(3). Tax-ID #93-1042868.
