WCPE Celebrates Bastille Day

TheClassicalStation.org Features French Music

Wake Forest, N.C. (July 10, 2013) —WCPE Music Director William Woltz announces a program celebrating Bastille Day on Sunday, July 14, 2013. A few short years after the United States gained its independence, the French threw off the tyranny of their absolute monarchy with the storming of the Bastille.

“This is a celebration of the French contribution to Great Classical Music,” offers Woltz.

Highlights of the celebration:

  • 7:00 a.m. Fauré: Cantique de Jean Racine
  • 11:00 a.m. Bizet: Children’s Games (Jeux d’Enfants)
  • 1:00 p.m. Debussy: La Mer
  • 2:00 p.m. Ravel: Noble and Sentimental Waltzes
  • 3:00 p.m. Couperin: Royal Concert no. 1
  • 4:00 p.m. Saint-Saëns: Symphony in A

“Enjoy the music of French composers throughout Bastille Day,” adds Woltz.

WCPE’s 24/7 live broadcast of Great Classical Music, 24 Hours A Day can be accessed by military and foreign service personnel around the globe in several ways; on-line streaming in multiple formats, including IPv6, small dish home satellite reception, local cable television systems and traditional radio broadcasting.
