Wake Forest, N.C. (July 31, 2013) — WCPE Music Director William Woltz announces a weekend-long extravaganza celebrating Great Classical Music in the cinema, August 10 and 11, 2013. Throughout this festival, WCPE will share music from films ranging from timeless to obscure. There’s newer music written especially for the movies, and old masterpieces that make the movie. On Saturday you may request your favorite cinema classic here.
“We get a head start Friday evening with Ravel’s Bolero featured in “10”, Korngold’s “The Adventures of Robin Hood”, Symphonie Fantastique by Berlioz in “Sleeping With the Enemy” and selections from “The Mission” by Morricone,” offers Woltz.
