This app was developed by New York Public Radio.
Broadcasting from downtown Manhattan for 75 years, WQXR is uniquely positioned within the world of classical music and opera as a cultural institution of New York City. In addition to broadcasting the beloved classical canon, we bring you the Metropolitan Opera Radio Saturday Matinee Broadcasts, The Philharmonic This Week on Thursday evenings, and original programs and live broadcasts from Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center. This app also showcases WQXR Digital's original video series such as Café Concerts, performances from the Jerome L. Greene Performance Space and exclusive interviews with artists and conductors.

Missing important feature
Disappointing update. The "Previously Played" still doesn't update as you stream the station. And there is no way to see an up-to-date playlist within the app. Otherwise a good app.
One feature missing
Please add Chromecast support
Love the on demand, previously played, and alarm clock.
