Wake Forest, N.C. (January 8, 2013) —WCPE Music Director William Woltz announces a weekend-long extravaganza celebrating Great Classical Music of the Russian Romantics, January 12-13, 2013. Throughout this two-day festival, WCPE will share music from Mussorgsky, Tchaikovsky, Rimsky-Korsakov and a host of others. On Saturday you may request your favorite composers here.
