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, March 18 through 20, 2016. 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.

“We will offer timeless masterpieces of Classical music that have become identified with feature films (think “The Blue Danube” from 2001: A Space Odyssey),” offers Woltz. “Plus there will be music written specifically for the silver screen.”
