All Classical Portland is thrilled to announce a new initiative dedicated to advancing the station’s mission of building cultural community…

JOY (Joyous Outreach to You/th)

Focused on developing a culture of equity and inclusion, JOY consists of three programs – Youth Roving Reporters, Where We Live Series and Night Outdesigned to explore new ways to share and celebrate classical music.

Youth Roving Reporters: All Classical Portland has just selected six individuals to serve as reporters within their community. Through this new initiative, these six young reporters will receive training and mentorship from the All Classical Portland on-air team to produce their content, and will emerge as arts ambassadors in their communities. Youth Roving Reporters will learn relevant storytelling skills, gain knowledge about the field of broadcast journalism, and receive a platform for their content through the radio station.

Where We Live Series: All Classical Portland will highlight a variety of organizations in the community that provide service-oriented programs within the realm of art, theater or music which explore the intersection of art and social issues.

Night Out: All Classical Portland will provide tickets and transportation for music-lovers who are challenged by personal circumstances to attend live arts events. With this initiative, All Classical Portland aims to share the joy, beauty and sense of community associated with experiencing the performing arts in person.
