Porter Anderson’s Challenge Grant for Q2

i1

The great, mighty and awe inspiring Q2 New Music web stream is participating in the WQXR fund drive.


Second year, second fund drive. Happy birthday Q2.

Q2 has a great friend in Porter Anderson

Porter has issued Q2′s first challenge grant. Here is what Porter has to say:

On Q2 Music and writing
The living composers of WQXR’s Q2 Music play an eloquent role in a writer’s creative process. Their work functions as collaborative leverage. Their music is made from the same day-to-day stimuli in which our writers live and work. And yet it’s not pop: it doesn’t tell you how to feel or what to think. Contemporary classical music paces a writer’s own impulses. Our composers are fortunate to have Q2. Imagine Mozart able to have his live concerts heard by a worldwide audience in real time. And writers are lucky to have Q2 as a vehicle with which to scale up our own creative efforts alongside the global reach of this 24-hour stream.

Q2′s benefits to me as a writer, journalist, and critic have been enormous. I hope to use this challenge grant to draw more of my writing colleagues to this resource, unique in the family of NPR affiliates and in the world.”

Here is a story Porter sent me about one writer friend’s experience of Q2.
