WCPE Music Director William Woltz announces a program celebrating Bastille Day on Monday, July 14, 2014. A few short years after the United States gained its independence, the French threw off the tyranny of their absolute monarchy with the storming of the Bastille.

“We will feature works by Rameau, Bizet, Berlioz, Debussy, Ravel and more,” offers Woltz. “This is a celebration of the French contribution to Great Classical Music, culminating in a salute to French orchestras on Monday Night at the Symphony.”

Highlights of the celebration:

8:00 a.m. Debussy: Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun
9:00 a.m. Leclair: Overture no. 1 in G
10:00 a.m. Ravel: Le Tombeau de Couperin
12:00 p.m. Satie: Gymnopédie no. 1
2:00 p.m. Saint-Saëns: Carnival of the Animals
