WCPE’s Swan Lake Contest

Throughout the centuries of classical ballet, no work more completely defines the art form than Swan Lake. An epic story of love and longing soars to ethereal heights with Tchaikovsky’s immortal score. Support WCPE on October 22, between 12:00 a.m. and 11:59 p.m., and you’ll be entered into our drawing for two tickets to see Carolina Ballet’s Swan Lake, this spring. Current sustainers are automatically entered.

We spoke with conductor Donald Oehler of The Chapel Hill Philharmonia. The orchestra will present music and song from Mozart’s “The Magic Flute” for its Children’s Concert featuring talented soloists from the UNC Department of Music. Mozart’s Fairy-Tale Opera: “The Magic Flute” takes place on Sunday, October 26 at 3:00pm in the Kenan Music Rehearsal Hall of the UNC campus in Chapel Hill. Admission is free. All are welcome. Thanks to support from the WCPE Education Fund, the concert will bring opera to children as well as provide performance opportunities to aspiring operatic singers. Strauss’s “Radetsky March” will conclude the program, followed by children meeting the musicians and instruments.
