What

Classical Corner is a popup activity area where you can create music with your family and friends. We have hands-on activities spanning from drum circles and baton making, to orchestra conducting and puppet dance parties.

Where

We are at every WFPK Waterfront Wednesday near the stage but keep up with WUOL on social media to see where else we popup.

When

We are at every WFPK Waterfront Wednesday 5:00 PM but keep up with WUOL on social media to see when else we popup.

Why

WFPK Waterfront Wednesday is the perfect event to enjoy live music with your loved ones, so we added the Classical Corner to create live music with them too.

These are some of the National Arts Standards met at the Classical Corner:

MU:Cr1.1.2 improvise rhythmic and melodic patterns and musical ideas for a specific purpose.

MU:Re8.1.PK with substantial guidance, explore music’s expressive qualities (such as dynamics and tempo).

VA:Cr1.1.1a engage collaboratively in exploration and imaginative play with materials.

How

Classical Corner is free and all ages when you sign up at our information booth, but all children must be accompanied by adults. We encourage you to share photos and videos while tagging WUOL and hash-tagging #ClassicalCorner so we can share the joy of music-making with others.

You can forward photos and videos or book a Classical Corner for your community event by contacting education@wuol.org
