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:
"My husband was in the hospital last month for several days. The commute to visit him was a 3 hour round-trip, during which I found your station. The music not only made the commute more pleasant, it also helped with the emotional roller coaster."
"My husband is in a care facility, and he listens to classical music all day. It has been terrific for him as therapy. "
"To me, music is more of a preventative measure - like a multi vitamin for my soul. "
