New Music Champions Unite!

Help Support and Celebrate Groundbreaking, Innovative Contemporary Classical Music 24/7

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

Q2 is listener-supported. Passionate about this great service and want to take a stand in support of new music? Become a Q2 listener-supporter and make a contribution to New York Public Radio today. And tell us why you listen to Q2. What is it about Q2 that gets your attention? What's valuable to you about Q2? Here are some highlights of our inaugural year.

But this is just the beginning. Our 24/7 commitment to discovering, nurturing and sharing the works of your favorite, brilliant, living composers and passionate, emerging ensembles, we hope they point to something more basic: a belief that the best is yet come! We operate with the conviction that discovering a new composer, a new work can change lives; that breathing in the volatile air of creativity and experimentation is always rewarding; that curiosity, above all else, is what keeps us moving forward, growing and developing.

With your active support and involvement, we can imbue Q2 with this spirit. Your membership dollars champion these ongoing and nascent ambitions. Your pledge dollars convince us that discovery, growth, curiosity and beauty are worth fighting for and bolster Q2 at every turn in its evolution.

I was told that if I pledge on the Q2 pledge page, it counts to the support of Q2, regardless that the money goes into the NYPR pot.

Jamie Conrad has it right. Pledge at the Q2 pledge page and get counted in. Enough of us and it will make a difference.

Gang, the other way to look at it is is like this: If WQXR sees that it's raising a bunch of $ from Q2, that will tend to lead it to give more resources to Q2. Whereas if Q2 listeners are all freegans or too pure to make unrestricted contributions, then they'll tend to want to pull the plug. Why take that chance when Q2 is such a rare and cool thing?

I'm with Bernard on this one! Q2 is what I'm listening to, and only that. My contribution can't be much, but I only want it to go to Q2. No button for me.

I want to support Q2, but it seems that my contribution would not be directed just to Q2. I find this unacceptable- like proposing marriage to a woman, but finding out that her siblings are part of the deal. I cannot even control what fraction of by contribution goes to Q2.
But gosh- I get a button !
No deal.
