Established by Aaron Richmond in 1938, the Series has evolved into New England's major presenting organization with over 100 performance and outreach activities annually.
WICN’s programs inform, inspire and entertain. By supporting WICN you’ll help us provide that service and you’ll enjoy the difference it makes for your business. We invite your company to enjoy the many benefits of strategic philanthropy through a corporate partnership with WICN Public Radio.
Like the vinyl records of old, the benefits of being a WICN sponsor are two-sided. The “A” side: you’ll be promoting your company to a unique and affluent listenership; the “B” side: you’ll be doing something good for your community.
