Terrance McKnight : About

Airs weeknights at 7pm on WQXR

Terrance McKnight is the WQXR weekday evening host. He also hosts the Saturday evening program, All Ears with Terrance McKnight, a show about musical discovery, which was honored with an ASCAP Deems Taylor Radio Broadcast Award in 2010.

McKnight’s musical experiences – from glee club soloist and accomplished pianist, to professor at Morehouse College, and finally as producer and host of several music programs for public radio – have consistently juxtaposed the European Classical tradition alongside American classic traditions – jazz, gospel, African American spirituals and other musical genres.

McKnight has hosted and produced several specials for WQXR including "I, Too, Sing America: Music in the Life of Langston Hughes;" "A Musical Journey in the Life of Martin Luther King, Jr.;" "A Musical Biography of Pioneering Pianist Hazel Scott" and "A Musical Biography of Florence Beatrice Price."

Other activities for McKnight include appearances as a panelist or speaker with Chamber Music America, the Mellon Foundation, American Opera Projects and the Metropolitan Museum of Art's concert and lecture series, among other outlets.
