Classical Minnesota Public Radio Class Notes® Programs Applications
All Class Notes programming is contingent upon award notification from the Legacy Amendment's Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund. We will proceed with applications in hopes we will receive full funding. If we do not receive full funding, programming will be adjusted to reflect available funds.
After a full year of virtual programming, we are hopeful that we will be able to return to in-person programming for the 2021-2022 school year. Safety issues will continue to be monitored and all decisions will be made in accordance to state and federal guidelines.
Since its founding, Class Notes has expanded and evolved significantly, growing in popularity and continuing to serve hundreds of thousands of students throughout Minnesota.
We are grateful for the Legacy Amendment's Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund, which supports Class Notes. As responsible stewards of this support, we continually examine both how best to keep the programs sustainable, and how best to deliver maximum impact in terms of student learning and educational integrity. During the COVID pandemic, Classical MPR began to more heavily invest in video resources to help serve students. We plan to continue to maintain some aspects of this work even as in-person visits resume.
Programming is outlined in greater detail below.
