WCPE Community Liaison Tara Lynn announces a weekend-long extravaganza celebrating Great Classical Music in the cinema. Throughout this two-day festival, WCPE will share music from films ranging from timeless to obscure. There's newer music written for the movie, and old masterpieces that make the movie.

"The sounds in a picture intensify our reaction to films," says Lynn, who is also Allegro host. "They even trigger our memory."

"We'll share a majestic euphony of movies," she continues. "There is also a video peek at volunteer and staff favorites."

In addition, a student cooperation of Prof. Douglas Shadle's class on the History of American Music at UNC-CH contributes suggestions for a playlist on WCPE's Great Sacred Music program. Thirty sacred classical selections used in the movies discovered in the students' research project will be broadcast Sunday, August 16, 8 to 11 a.m. ET as part of the "Cinema Classics Weekend."

WCPE's 24/7 live broadcast of Great Classical Music, 24 Hours A Day can be accessed around the globe in several ways; on-line streaming in multiple formats, including IPv6, small dish home satellite reception, local cable television systems and traditional radio broadcasting. A complete list of the ways WCPE is available with instructions for cable and satellite reception can be found at: http://theclassicalstation.org/listen.shtml.
