From the President


Did you know that March is “Music in Our Schools Month?”

This national celebration is designed to engage music educators, students, and communities to promote the benefits of high quality music education programs in schools. At WXXI, we know how important music is to a child’s intellectual and social development, which is why we’re joining the celebration – with Classical 91.5 taking the lead – by providing a variety of on-air and online content. This includes special arts segments and a curated web page where you can share a story, tribute or memory of a music teacher who made a difference in your life. If you’d like to be part of this effort, Classical 91.5 is partnering with the Rochester Education Foundation (REF) to collect musical instruments and supplies for Rochester City students.

Recent WXXI Recognition

We commonly hear from viewers and listeners about how much one of our programs affected their lives. Whether it’s a notable television special or an intriguing report on AM 1370, your response to our efforts helps us gauge the effect of our programming. Sometimes though, our programs get accolades in a more formal way, whether through awards or nominations.

Education Takes the Stage Again!

We often talk about the power of partnerships, whether it’s two organizations finding some symbiotic energy to address a community problem or two groups discovering that there is a parallel in their missions that can be made stronger by working together. A great example of both those is the upcoming Education Takes the Stage Luncheon.

A Special Story

We hear a lot of heart-warming stories at WXXI and here’s one I have to share.

Education is Still at Our Core

With unfolding radio news, continuous classical music and compelling primetime programs from American Experience to Downton Abbey, what sometimes gets lost in the mix is – arguably – the most important value WXXI provides.
