With expanded programming on-air, online and on stage, Classical MPR’s Choral Initiative ignites and celebrates Minnesota’s treasured choral tradition and voices from around the world. Audiences enjoy the 24-hour Choral Stream, a weekly “Sing to Inspire” radio segment, and regional choral concerts like Bring the Sing. We’re continually expanding outreach to schools, festivals and community choirs throughout the state to inspire and amplify choral music everywhere.

The Current

Launching The Current in Duluth

The Current in Duluth

Thanks to the support of Members, The Current has become an important part of the Minnesota music community. From spectacular live events like Rock the Cradle and Rock the Garden to the amazing tracks from Minnesota artists that they play each day, The Current is helping to build a richer, more vibrant music scene across the state. The commitment to local music is evident in the recent launch of 90.9 The Current in Duluth, which will feature a Duluth-based radio personality and a weekly Duluth Local Music show.
