TheClassicalStation.org Celebrates Sounds of the Silver Screen

WCPE Music Director William Woltz announces a weekend-long extravaganza celebrating Great Classical Music in the cinema, August 8 through 10, 2014. Throughout this festival, WCPE will share music from films ranging from timeless to obscure. There’s newer music, written especially for the movies, and old masterpieces that make the movie. On Saturday you may request your favorite cinema classic here.

“The right music makes a great film even better,” offers Woltz. “Beginning with Allegro on Friday afternoon, we feature Classical selections that have been used in your favorite films, plus music written especially for the silver screen.”
