Porter Anderson’s Challenge Grant for Q2
The great, mighty and awe inspiring Q2 New Music web stream is participating in the WQXR fund drive.
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.
