WCPE Music Director William Woltz announces a weekend-long extravaganza celebrating Great Classical Music in the cinema, August 12 through 14, 2016. Throughout this festival, WCPE will share music from films ranging from timeless to obscure. On Saturday you may request your favorite cinema classic here.

“A great film relies on both sight and sound for its impact. So for many of us, the memory of a favorite movie scene is forever linked with the music playing at the time,” 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.”
