Classical Corner

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.

“I loved playing drums at the Classical Corner.” – Allie, 5th Grader

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. You can join us at every WFPK Waterfront Wednesday starting at 5:30 PM just west of the stage but keep up with WUOL on social media to see where else we popup.
