Support from Members empowers informative programming like In Focus on MPR News, a series that brings attention to the persistent racial disparities that exist in Minnesota – and what can be done about them. Recent discussions included how to get first-time voters to the polls, COVID learning loss in Minnesota schools, and student mental health in K-12 education.

As Minnesota’s only statewide network, we work hard to provide trusted journalism and high-quality programming to nearly 1 million Minnesotans free of charge, every single day. We can only do this because you choose to support our public service so generously.

YourClassical MPR Inspires

With your investment, YourClassical MPR is inspiring the next generation of classical musicians and music lovers. Class Notes supports teachers through free music education resources, including lesson plans and in-school concerts. Visit their recently updated website here.  

YourClassical also welcomed Vernon Neal, the new host of Rhapsody in Black, a podcast where we turn up the voices of Black artists in the world of classical music. You can learn more about Vernon and the podcast here.

Thanks for keeping classical music alive for generations to come.
