I am a WQXR listener since 1984 and I have to admit that after the rescue by WNYC the quality of programing has greatly improved, and concert like this is the evidence.
Thank you

It is such a delight to be able to see and listen to the performances in the Greene Space. WQXR has brought a great new dimension the enjoyment of classical music through these live broadcast from the Greene Space. I hope to be able to be present at some of them, but in the meantime I feel that I am connected with the WQXR community via the internet and the website.
Thank you WQXR
