A mutual love and enjoyment of classical music was an early element of attraction in our relationship. Since then we have enjoyed developing more knowledge of the music. When we moved to Portland more than 10 years ago, we found All Classical Portland and then saw a solicitation for volunteer support. Since then, we have been involved in various forms of support for the station: tabling at concerts, answering phones during pledge drives, and providing office support. Having represented the station at several opera events we have grown from novice listeners to lovers of the genre. We think All Classical Portland is a musical blessing to Portland.
