Wake Forest, N.C. (March 13, 2017) — WCPE Music Director William Woltz announces a weekend-long extravaganza celebrating Great Classical Music in the cinema, March 17 through 19, 2017. 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.
