WCPE FM Offers Something New at Noon, Every Day in June
TheClassicalStation.org Highlights a New or Recent Classical Music CD Release
WAKE FOREST, N.C. (June 1, 2017) — WCPE’s Music Director William Woltz announces “Something New at Noon, Every Day in June.” Join WCPE every day this month at noon (Eastern Time) as it highlights a new or recent Classical music CD release. Classical music is a centuries-old tradition; yet it remains vital today, thanks to each new generation of performers and composers.
“We’ll celebrate what’s new in Classical music every day this month by featuring selections from recent recordings,” offers Woltz. “Hear established performers alongside the best of today’s new artists playing symphonic works, chamber music, solo piano, choral works and more.”
WCPE will keep the Classical music experience fresh. To satisfy any curiosity that has been piqued, listen to Preview!, the weekly showcase of new releases and arts news airing every Sunday from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. ET on WCPE, The Classical Station.
“We can’t wait to open the mail each day to see what’s new from the record companies!” concludes Woltz.
Also the All Request Friday Program on June 30 enables listeners to add their favorite composers and performers to the playlist.
