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.
