WQXR Announces Artist Propulsion Lab Recipients

New York's classical music radio station, WQXR, announced the recipients of their new Artist Propulsion Lab initiative

In response to the pandemic shutdown, WQXR hand-picked six early and mid-career artists to help support them during this time.

The recipients are:

  • VC Artist Junction Trio
  • Violist VC Young Artist Jordan Bak
  • Violinist Kelly Hall-Tompkins
  • Pianist Orion Weiss
  • Flutist Brandon Patrick George
  • Mezzo-soprano Kara Dugan

Each artist will receive an honorarium of $15,000, as well as a budget of up to $5,000 to engage collaborators and commission works.

The cohort of artists will have the opportunity to take advantage of WQXR’s various outlets including Greene Space performances and on-air curation opportunities.

WQXR's website reads, "We welcome these six wonderful artists to the Artist Propulsion Lab, and look forward to enjoying everything they do!"
