Artists In Residence is a program designed to foster creative and professional growth for emerging and established artists. Launched in 2019, Artists in Residence provides selected young and professional musicians and composers with access to All Classical Portland’s world-class facilities and studio time. Artists also enjoy opportunities to expand and deepen engagement with audiences, including on-air performances on Thursdays @ Three, appearances at station events and concerts, features on special broadcasts, and recordings of new works.
Artists are encouraged to pursue creative research projects and to publish related articles about their work and findings through All Classical Portland’s wide-reaching platforms.
