WCL House Concerts Series
While we're still unable to welcome you into our house, we're excited to present a series of virtual WCL House Concerts with a nod to the centuries-old tradition! We've invited some of your favorite Philly-area artists, many of whom have played our stages countless times over the years, to share their music. These intimate livestream concerts will premiere on our YouTube channel, directly from the artists' homes to yours.
WCL House Concerts will be FREE to watch, but we hope you'll consider making a donation to support independent live music. Click "Add to Cart" to RSVP for a reminder email with the stream link, where you can also make an optional donation of any amount. All donations will be split between the artist and World Cafe Live. World Cafe Live is a nonprofit and all donations are tax-deductible.
