TheClassicalStation.org Honors Jewish High Holy Days

WCPE offers Special Programming for Yom Kippur

WAKE FOREST, N.C. (September 8, 2013) — Friday evening, September 13, at 6 p.m. ET, WCPE presents a Yom Kippur Special to observe 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. Join WCPE at 6 p.m. ET on Friday, September 13 for one of Judaism's High Holy Days.

“We'll feature performances by the Zemel Choir of London, the Western Wind Vocal Ensemble and cellist Janos Starker,” offers WCPE Music Director William Woltz.

WCPE will air a repeat performance of the program at 2 p.m. on Saturday, September 14.

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.
