Community Connection

WNRN prides itself in giving our nonprofit neighbors a venue to promote their causes and events. We create recorded Public Service Announcements for nonprofits that are written in their words and recorded in their voice. We call this series “Community Connections”.

Creating a Community Connection is an easy process. First, write up a 3-5 sentence paragraph of what you want to promote. If it is an event, WNRN requires at least three-weeks advance notice to create a Community Connection for any event. To take full advantage of the program, we recommend six weeks to a month’s notice to promote the event. If there is an admission or cost for the event, 100% of proceeds must benefit the nonprofit.

Once your paragraph is written, email it to connection@wnrn.org. We will then edit your words to fit FCC regulations to create a Community Connection script. After that we’ll schedule a time for a representative of the nonprofit to record the script at WNRN. Our recording times are Monday afternoons from 2-5pm or Thursday mornings from 9am-noon.

Organizations profiled by WNRN or organizations whose information is broadcast within Hear Together/Community Connections must be a registered 501c3 and must submit their 501c3 letter of registration prior to recording or participating in Hear Together/Community Connections.

Zephyrus presents Monteverdi at 450

Saturday, April 29, 2017
8:00 p.m.

To celebrate the 450th anniversary of the birth of Claudio Monteverdi, Zephyrus presents a concert of music by the revolutionary composer who changed the course of music history.  The centerpiece of the program is the stunning Missa in illo tempore, which Monteverdi published in the same volume as his famous Vespers setting, and which he intended as a demonstration of his mastery of traditional Renaissance counterpoint.  A collection of his finest motets rounds out the program.  For the Charlottesville performance, Zephyrus will be joined by the Washington Cornett and Sackbutt Ensemble, baroque violins, and organ. Donations will be accepted. For more information visit our website.
