Classical music on WSMR is deeply rewarding in any season, but, during the holiday season, its joyful, beautiful sound is especially inspiring and enriching. And Classical WSMR is so fortunate to have a loyal and generous audience that understands the uniqueness of free access for everyone to experience the joy of classical music.
In a world so unsettled, the restorative oasis you find at Classical WSMR is more important than ever – which is why your strong support at a time of reflection and generosity is essential.
Give the gift of Mozart’s symphonies, Beethoven’s quartets and the magnificence of Puccini’s operas and keep the music playing today and into 2023!
If you're new to Florida, or the Tampa Bay region, you may be surprised to learn—the South is actually north of us! And one southern city on every history buff’s list is Savannah, Georgia. Nothing quite matches the southern charm, and architectural beauty of Historic Savannah—especially this time of the year. Classical WSMR wants to give you and a guest a chance to explore this 270-year-old southern beauty, in a completely new way. We’ll get your trip back in time started by first class rail, in your own roomette, complete with a dedicated attendant in your car. You’ll spend three days and three nights right in the heart of Savannah's National Historic Landmark District at a boutique hotel and the rest is up to you! So, if you’ve never been—or you’ve been a hundred times—this trip is sure to be uniquely you!

A Special Thank You
During our Holiday Campaign, you can select to opt out of receiving a thank you gift for yourself, and instead do “twice the good” by selecting one of our partner organizations that are assisting in Hurricane Ian relief efforts.
WSMR will direct the cost normally spent on branded items, (about 6-10% of an annual contribution) to the organization you choose. Simply select the organization you would like to receive your “thank you gift” in the drop-down menu on the donation page, and we will do the rest! It’s quick and easy—and means a great deal to our neighbors in need. Thank you!
