WCPE Offers Birthday Tribute to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Mozart Madness to Air January 25 through 27 on TheClassicalStation.org
WAKE FOREST, N.C. (January 22, 2013)—William Woltz, music director for WCPE, TheClassicalStation.org, announces today that in recognition of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Birthday, WCPE celebrates the wunderkind from Salzburg for three days, January 25 through his birthday on January 27, 2013.
“That Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart could write a symphony at the age of eight is remarkable,” offers Woltz, who also hosts Allegro. “That the dying adult left us with his achingly beautiful Requiem is a gift to mankind.”
