Letter from Our Co-Chairs
We are excited to lead Breaking New Ground Together: The Campaign for KEXP’s New Home to build a new facility at Seattle Center. Though we share a passion for music, the four of us come from different walks of life. We could live anywhere, but choose Seattle because it speaks to us in a special way, and KEXP gives it a unique voice that reaches deep into our hearts and all around the world.
As a cross-section of the KEXP Community, we’re thrilled by the new vision for KEXP. The money we raise will cover construction and new equipment, yet we’re building much more than a radio station. This dynamic facility at the heart of Seattle Center will be the epicenter of a cultural shift in how millions of people experience music.
KEXP’s new home will be an arts organization like no other, a hub where the music lovers, artists, and curators who have made Seattle a world-class music city can share the joy of “music that matters” around the globe. Fueled by its commitment to new sounds and one-of-a-kind experiences, KEXP will explore uncharted territory and expand its offerings and services—on the air, online, and in its new home—to bring more art and music into more lives throughout Seattle and around the world.
Thank you for reviewing KEXP’s plans, and joining our disparate band of trailblazers who will create the future of music through this campaign.
