Graham Parker is the General Manager of WQXR and Vice President of New York Public Radio. WQXR is the most listened-to classical station in the country and New York’s only all-classical station.

Over the past three years, Parker has overseen and implemented an ambitious growth plan that puts WQXR front and center in New York’s thriving classical music scene. During Parker’s tenure, WQXR has launched a new national series, Carnegie Hall Live, pioneered critically acclaimed festivals including Beethoven Awareness Month and Month of Mozart, and presented a broad range of live events.

Parker has secured WQXR’s role as a leading digital music source, with the growth of Q2Music, a channel dedicated to contemporary classical music, and the launch of Operavore, WQXR’s 24/7 opera channel.

Prior to joining WQXR, Parker was the Executive Director of Orpheus Chamber Orchestra. In his eight years with Orpheus, Parker played a critical role in securing the long-term future for this world-class orchestra.
