Thank you for your interest in All Classical Portland’s Recording Inclusivity Initiative! This project is made possible in part by a grant from the Oregon Cultural Trust. Through the Recording Inclusivity Initiative, in partnership with the N M BODECKER FOUNDATION, All Classical Portland will create 5 high-quality, broadcast-ready recordings of classical music works by regional composers, representing historically underrepresented and marginalized communities.
Building upon the station’s regional initiative, All Classical Portland is challenging classical music radio stations across the country to create a Recording Inclusivity Initiative within their own communities. Through these recordings and the station’s national challenge, All Classical Portland strives to make meaningful and lasting change in classical music and public radio, expanding and diversifying America’s playlist.
Please use the form below to nominate a composer and piece of music for consideration by the Recording Inclusivity Initiative Advisory Panel. Nominations will be accepted through November 30th, 2020. Selected composers and musical works will be announced in December 2020, and recordings will begin in January 2021.
