Our Plan 2021

Call for Nominations. All Classical Portland challenged listeners, Pacific Northwest artists, and performing arts organizations to nominate musical works by underrepresented classical composers to be recorded and published through the Recording Inclusivity Initiative.

Diverse Leadership. The RII Panel and Executive Advisors, comprising leaders from the radio, recording, publishing, and performing arts industries, will select five winning compositions.

Composers-in-Residence. Living composers will be offered a week-long residency with All Classical Portland and N M Bodecker Foundation, to include in-studio recording sessions, and a $2,500 award.

Recording and Distribution. All selected compositions, including contemporary and posthumous works, will be recorded by N M Bodecker Foundation, published if applicable, and distributed by Naxos Records and All Classical Portland.

National Expansion. All Classical Portland will challenge public radio stations across the United States to launch their own regional initiative, providing a how-to kit based on lessons learned from All Classical Portland’s inaugural Recording Inclusivity Initiative.
