TheClassicalStation.org Honors Jewish High Holy Days

WAKE FOREST, N.C. (September 29, 2011) — Friday evening, October 7, at 6 p.m. ET, WCPE presents the Yom Kippur Liturgy 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. The music and liturgy will be sung by the Western Wind and Chorus and narrated by Leonard Nimoy. Join WCPE at 6 p.m. ET on Friday, October 7 for one of Judaism's High Holy Days.

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.
