“City Lights” explores the ways in which people express themselves creatively and enhance our lives.

In addition to a wide range of music, “City Lights” covers theater, dance, pop culture, visual arts and more. WABE has long been a partner with many organizations in Atlanta and through “City Lights” we’re deepening those relationships to serve our community with even greater arts and cultural content.
