WCPE FM Honors Women’s Equality Day

TheClassicalStation.org Features Classical Females

Wake Forest, N.C. (August 18, 2017) —WCPE’s Music Director William Woltz announces a celebration of Women’s Equality Day, August 26, 2017. The event honors female composers, conductors and performers commemorating the passage of the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote.

“The day actually commemorates the passage of voting rights for women, but it’s a great occasion for us to feature women in Classical music,” says Woltz. “This year it falls on the Saturday Evening Request Program. You’re invited to request something written by Clara Schumann, Fanny Mendelssohn, Jennifer Higdon, Joan Tower or your favorite female composer.”

26 Saturday
9:00 a.m. Chaminade: “Carnival Waltz”
11:00 a.m. Price: Symphony in E Minor
1:00 p.m. C. Schumann: Piano Concerto in A Minor
3:00 p.m. Mendelssohn-Hensel: Piano Sonata in C Minor

“An enthusiastic “Thank you to The Classical Station” for featuring a celebration of women creators present and past,” offers Composer Barbara Harbach. “Also for fostering an appreciation for the accomplishments of women throughout history while encouraging interest and research on women artists.”
