Every Day in June
Join WCPE for a daily feature of recently released Classical recordings. Symphonic works, chamber music, piano, and more from established artists as well as today’s up-and-coming performers.
- Independence Day
Our extended holiday weekend observance begins Friday, July 3, and features great U.S. composers, orchestras, and soloists. And we’ll play lots of patriotic selections on the fourth to celebrate the birth of our country. It’s music that will make you proud.
- Bastille Day
Works by Bizet, Berlioz, Rameau, Couperin, Fauré, Debussy, Ravel, and more—a celebration of the French contribution to Great Classical Music.
- WCPE’s Anniversary
Join us in celebrating 37 years of broadcasting! We’ll play lots of great music, with an emphasis on selections from WCPE’s Top 100 survey of listener favorites. And we’ll invite you to show your support for theclassicalstation.orgGreat Classical Music by becoming a sustaining member of WCPE’s musical family.
- Cinema Classics Weekend
A great film relies on both sight and sound for its impact. For many of us, the memory of a favorite movie scene is forever linked with the music playing at the time. 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. It’s one of our most popular theme weekends and one that will bring back more than a few memories.
- Women’s Equality Day
The day actually celebrates women’s suffrage, but it’s also a great time for WCPE to feature women in Classical music: composers such as Clara Schumann, Fanny Mendelssohn, Jennifer Higdon, Joan Tower, Amy Beach, and Ethel Smyth (herself a suffragette leader in England!).
