Building on the success of its Music Feeds campaign in 2017 & 2018, the unprecedented effort that provided 53,538 meals to those in need in Oregon and SW Washington, All Classical Portland announces Music Heals.
All Classical Portland’s Music Heals initiative is a comprehensive radio, web, and social media campaign. It is designed to raise awareness of local organizations that are using music to heal and help connect community members to those resources. The campaign also encourages other innovative public radio stations to follow suit, making a similar impact on communities nationwide.
Olson & Jones Construction is the station’s generous corporate partner for this unparalleled effort. Using the collaborative momentum of Music Feeds, All Classical Portland will continue to build, care for, and nourish its diverse community of listeners.

All Classical Portland listeners comment on the healing power of music:
"Music is time travel. It is a collision of emotions. What else in this world that you neither see nor touch can take you in its arms and move you?"
"Some of the most joyous moments have been dancing to beautiful music, healing me in small doses over time. "
"Music serves as an entry point into a state of mind that connects me to a feeling or period of my life. It's through this effect that I time travel and reflect in hopes to learn, heal, and grow. "
Through Music Heals, the station is continuing its pioneering work — utilizing its wide-reaching megaphone to shine a spotlight on more than ten regional organizations through September 2019. Read more below!
