“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. We work work with DrumSmart, Squallis Puppeteers, Compass Quartet, Speed of Sound Quartet, KMAC, Speed Art Museum, Louisville Folk School, Mom’s Music, Louisville Academy of Music, and many more to provide activities. You can join us at every WFPK Waterfront Wednesday starting at 5:00 PM near the stage but keep up with WUOL on social media to see where else we popup.
