2020

It’s a party, and you’re invited! The 3rd Annual WRTI & Astral Block Party has moved from Walnut Street,—where we’ve hosted hundreds of fans for the past two years—to WRTI 90.1 and streaming at wrti.org, where thousands can listen safely.

The National Endowment for the Arts will honor it's 2020 class of Jazz Masters virtually, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. The ceremony and concert, originally set to take place in April, will be available online at 8 PM on Thursday, August 20th, and you can watch it right here.

We have great news. The 33rd Annual Clifford Brown Jazz Festival is on—but this year, it’s on your computer or device. The largest free jazz festival on the East Coast will not be performing live in Rodney Square in downtown Wilmington, DE. Instead, a cream-of–the-crop lineup will be playing in a recording studio, and streamed to you here, via the WRTI website.
