WQXR Patrons Circle

WQXR Patrons Circle Levels and Benefits

WQXR Patrons Circle members are listeners who place a high value on beautiful and thoughtfully curated classical music. With your support, WQXR showcases a wide variety of classical music and New York’s best live performances. In addition to daily programs presented by your favorite hosts, we bring you Carnegie Hall Live, The New York Philharmonic This Week, our Operavore and Q2 streams and much more. From our intimate, acoustically brilliant Jerome L. Greene Performance Space in lower Manhattan, audiences have enjoyed master performances from artists like Emanuel Ax, Christine Goerke, the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra and many others.

To thank our Patrons Circle members for their vital support, WQXR offers a host of unique benefits throughout the year. Private events and tickets to performances in The Jerome L. Greene Space bring you up close with WQXR hosts and classical music virtuosos while cultural partners offer access to the riches of New York City’s artistic treasures. Members at the Gold level and above are invited to a year-long series of Behind the Mic events featuring leading luminaries in the cultural and classical music worlds.
