WWFM had several visitors on May 18 as part of the Mercer County Teen Arts Festival, sponsored by the Mercer County Cultural and Heritage Commission and held at Mercer County Community College. Production Manager and A Tempo host Rachel Katz led a workshop showing students what goes into creating a show and being on the air. As always, it was great to meet these students who appreciate music and the arts!

Due to the inclement weather in the Northeast, The Classical Network postponed its celebration of the musical genius of JS Bach to today. However - don’t delay your support of the great programming you enjoy here every day. Help us make our goal of 500 donations this month by renewing your membership, becoming a new member or making an additional gift.

WWFM The Classical Network presents “Deep River: The Art of the Spiritual,” featuring the Washington-based PostClassical Ensemble and bass-baritone Kevin Deas, live in concert Friday Feb. 16 at 8 pm at Princeton Theological Seminary’s Miller Chapel.

The Classical Network once again is looking forward to its annual Beethoven Birthday Bash, marking the 247th birthday of the great composer on Friday December 15. This is also a day to celebrate the listener support that makes it all possible. 

As part of its ongoing 35th Anniversary celebration, WWFM recently invited its top donors and underwriters to a special Donor Appreciation evening, held at the Hopewell Valley Golf and Country Club on November 11, 2017. The event included short performances by some of our guest artists and program hosts, including pianist Clipper Erickson, Joe Horowitz and Angel Gil-Ordonez (PostClassical), David Dubal (The Piano Matters), Rob Kapilow (What Makes it Great?) and Jed Distler (Between the Keys/JazzOn2's Piano Excursions).

The Classical Network is reaching out again this Giving Tuesday to help worthy organizations spread the word of the work they do to benefit people in our region.

This Tuesday, November 28, we are inviting representatives from HomeFront, TASK, Trenton Music Makers, the Princeton Senior Resource Center, SAVE - A Place for Animals and other local service organizations to come join us on the air and talk about their mission and the people they serve.

Jed Distler, The Classical Network’s Artist-in-Residence, has been named the 2017 recipient of the ASCAP Foundation Deems Taylor/Virgil Thomson Radio Broadcast/Internet Award for his weekly program Between the Keys, a creative, imaginative and unique journey through the keyboard repertoire. 

New: Watch the first part of this event on Facebook!
