WCPE offers Special Programming for Rosh Hashanah
WAKE FOREST, N.C. (August 30, 2013) — Wednesday evening, September 4, at 6 p.m. ET, WCPE presents a special program of music for Rosh Hashanah to celebrate the Judaic New Year as prescribed in the Biblical Book of Numbers. From the beginning of Rosh Hashanah through Yom Kippur - the Day of Atonement - the mood, music and liturgy call for a somber, penitential introspection, both individually and as a community. The program will be repeated Thursday, September 5 at 1 p.m.
“We will have performances by Itzhak Perlman, Chicago a capella and the Zamir Chorale of Boston,” offers Music Director William Woltz.
The Great Classical Music offered by WCPE transcends belief systems, being crafted by artists from all traditions, and listened to by a global audience reflective of the world’s diversity. Found throughout WCPE’s programming are the traditions of people from all walks of life.
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.
