All Classical Portland Launches Challenge to Change America’s Playlist

Let’s diversify America’s playlist, together. The Recording Inclusivity Initiative (RII) was created by All Classical Portland, a public radio station based in the Pacific Northwest, in collaboration with N M Bodecker Foundation and Naxos Records. RII seeks to address the gap of classical music composers and musicians from underrepresented communities that make it into the concert hall and onto the airwaves. With your nominations, we will work together to change America’s playlist by producing new high-quality recordings of classical music by underrepresented composers.

Nomination Period: January 13 – February 12, 2021
Website: allclassical.org/recordinginclusivity
