WCPE Announces Local Arts Series In Collaboration With Quail Ridge Books and Music
TheClassicalStation.org Joins Quail Ridge Books and Music
Wake Forest, N.C. (December 30, 2010) —WCPE Community and Arts Liaison Tara Lynn announces a new Local Arts Series at Quail Ridge Books and Music (LA@QR). Each month a new local arts organization will talk about its mission and one of its upcoming performances. Each event in the series also includes a performance aspect. This series is designed to be as entertaining as it is educational.
“This is new territory for WCPE,” say Lynn. “We will be more involved than ever before.”
“Long term, we hope to boost attendance for arts performances,” she continues.
Lynn hopes to showcase the innovation of local arts groups who are always adapting to engage the community. Quail Ridge Books and Music has a long time commitment to Raleigh's music scene and a history of bringing free live music to the community as well as encouraging support of all the arts. This series is a sampler to help individuals find the projects and performances they most enjoy. WCPE and Quail Ridge Books and Music both look forward to working with more arts groups in the future and, together, focusing on community educational efforts. Lynn says the radio station is grateful to Quail Ridge Books and & Music for allowing WCPE to join with them and for giving this series a home. All of the events in the series are free and open to the public!
"I am delighted to have WCPE join us in bringing live classical music programs to Quail Ridge Books and Music through our new collaboration, WCPE Local Arts series,” offers Nancy Olson, founder and owner of Quail Ridge Books and Music.
”’Meet the Announcers’ is a perfect way to kick off this exciting new series,” she adds.
Events planned so far are:
Wednesday, January 12, 2011 at 7:30 p.m. : Meet the WCPE Announcers!
Tuesday, February 1, 2011 at 7:30 p.m. : The Mallarmé Chamber Players.
March : KidzNotes.

With a 30 plus year history, WCPE is a non-commercial, 100 percent listener-supported, independent station dedicated to excellence in Great Classical Music broadcasting. Community-minded business underwriters and foundations are among the 150,000 listeners in the North Carolina broadcast area. General Manager Deborah S.

WCPE is one of the first public broadcasters to stream on the Internet. WCPE is heard worldwide on the Internet in multiple formats, including the next generation IPv6.
