Announcing ‘Noteworthy’ hosted by Lynnsay Maynard

All Classical Portland is excited to announce an all-new radio program titled Noteworthy, hosted and produced by Lynnsay Maynard! Beginning October 23, 2022, Noteworthy will air Sundays at 12:00 PM PT and will explore the intersection of classical music and literature through select musical pieces, short passages, and occasional interviews with authors and figures of the literary world.

Noteworthy is designed to be “a record player and a library card all in one!”

“Books and music transport us. With the turn of a page or the strum of a bow, we can cross cultures and centuries, reconnect with ourselves through a character, and find melodies that explain feelings in a way that words cannot. Once upon a time, literary luminaries like Virginia Woolf and Haruki Murakami have found solace in classical music that spilled onto the page.”

With the introduction of Noteworthy, All Classical Portland’s popular Sunday Brunch program, hosted by President & CEO Suzanne Nance, will shift from its three-hour timeslot to two hours from 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM PT. Brandi Parisi’s weekly program Played In Oregon will continue to delight audiences with local performances from across the Pacific Northwest at 1:00 PM PT, following Noteworthy.

Sunday Brunch and all the Sunday programs will also be available to stream on-demand in All Classical Portland’s Audio Archive for two weeks following each broadcast.
