On our final stop we’ll join Bourbon Baroque for carols, coffee and more carols at Flora Kitchenette. Everyone is invited to sing/play-a-along all while enjoying vegan treats and coffee from Flora! This second-annual event also is a time for us to raise funds and gather gently used instruments for the Instrumental Partners program. Since the beginning of Instrumental Partners in 2000, 90.5 WUOL has placed more than 1,500 instruments in schools.

“Classical music does not have to be stuffy; in fact, it was birthed in private chambers…think salon music. It was enjoyed in the home among friends, just like modern day garage band sessions. You can drink and be merry all while enjoying the intimacy of making music. The musicians, of course, know this; yet, the audience can be in on the fun too,” says John Austin Clark, Artist Director of Bourbon Baroque. In order to serve the music, Classical music should be performed in a variety of venues for all walks of life. That’s what it’s all about… WUOL’s Instrumental Partners is the perfect program to partner with as it promotes community engagement while securing instruments for the young music makers of our community.”

Many organizations are serving people this month with warm meals, safe places, and happy faces. We’re partnering with them and generous musicians to add live holiday music to these services! If you can volunteer to serve food contact us for more info education@wuol.org
