WTJU’s Classical Marathon asks you to “Give Bach to the community,” Dec 5th-11th

WTJU’s 2016 Classical Music Marathon airs December 5th through 11th – a week where we wipe clean our regular program schedule and feature round-the-clock classical music. This year’s Classical Marathon celebrates five centuries of music and 60 years of WTJU’s radio broadcasting.

The Classical Marathon doubles as a pledge drive for WTJU as we raise $40,000 from our listeners. Donate today!

A few of the Classical Marathon programming highlights you can look forward to:

  • “Give Bach to WTJU” – Experience the works of JS Bach, his sons, and the music they influenced. Mon-Fri 11am-1pm.
