Watch Hops & Harmony Valentines from Mechanics Hall — February 2018

In Partnership, Mechanics Hall and WCCA TV present Hops and  Harmony at the Hall. It was a fun night of live music with audience  participation at Mechanics Hall on February 12, 2018.  Audience members  learned how to sing “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen. Guest artists were Amanda Carr and Matty B. 

Hops & Harmony is brought to you by Mechanics Hall with partner WCCA TV and supported by Atlas Distributors, Bay State Savings Bank, Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, and the Worcester Railers.

WCCA TV Needs Your Support To Keep A Valuable Youth Program For Underprivileged Youth From Ending

The following testimonial is from Dee Wells (a professional Photographer and Filmmaker) about how WCCA TV helped him in pursuit of his career.

WCCA TV offers opportunities and training for people in Worcester of all incomes. This summer we hope to have a youth program for underprivileged youth in our community, but the funding that used to pay for that annual program has been cut. We need your help to keep it going this year (2018) while we search for a sustainable way to pay for the Community Connections youth program for underprivileged youth in 2019 and after.

Please send a generous donation by going to the following link web address: or calling during office hours M-F at 508-755-1880. Donations may, also, be sent to WCCA TV, 415 Main St., Worcester, MA 01608. Please state that your donation is for youth programs.

Thank You for your support.
