WAKE FOREST, N.C. (January 20, 2014)—William Woltz, music director for WCPE, TheClassicalStation.org, announces today that in recognition of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Birthday, WCPE celebrates the wunderkind from Salzburg for three days, January 25 through his birthday on January 27, 2014.

“A child prodigy, Mozart had extraordinary gifts which culminated in music of profound beauty, touching the soul in a way that few others have done,” offers Woltz, who also hosts Allegro. “Join WCPE for a celebration of all things Mozart.”
